The Story Behind the painting "Woman" by Kathy Poitras
Woman 48x24x2 inches painted on the sides. She is simply my celebration of our strength, our beauty and our nurturing natures. I was delighted when I created this painting. I have heard artists on award shows, who say “And I thank God for this” and I heard a story, (I don’t know how accurate it is) that Michael Jackson called someone he was working with at 3:00 in the morning, to tell him about a song he just realized, and the guy said “Michael, It’s 3:00 in the morning. Tell me tomorrow. And Michael said “God gave me this song, and I have to act on it now or he’ll give it to Prince” I understand that. Sometimes art is simply Divine inspiration. You just sit in front of a canvas and what occurs, occurs.
