As I woke up this morning, made myself some coffee, realized I lost an hour from my day and checked Facebook, I became aware that it is International Women's Day. I immediately turned on the television in an anticipation of a parade, but none to be found. This made me go hmm. I thought to myself, we celebrate a jolly ol' man with a white beard, but not someone that is actually real.
So, here is my parade celebrating International Women's Day through art. It's not all.
It's not even most.
But, just a few.

|Georgia O'Keeffe in 1918|
|Self-Portrait as a Lute Player, 1615–1617|

I think the last one is my favorite:)
These are just a few from a list of thousands. As I was researching and browsing, I came across an excellent resource from the National Museum of Women in the Arts to use in the classroom.
A big "Thank You" to these artists who mark the path for others.
xoxo, SMocK you.
