ME, TOO, 24" x 30", acrylic on canvas
When I painted this in response to a news story about Anne Bynum and a miscarriage of justice in Arkansas, the story didn't seem to exactly feel right. Looking at this lately reminded me of Mr. Jenkins telling me that I was "taking some man's place" in that drawing class at UT. Some man somewhere "really needed this education." At the time I was confused, perplexed. What was he talking about? Later I figured out the he did not think a girl needed an education. I will rename it. It better matches this "Me, too" movement than that story in Arkansas.
