Art of the Month | March 2020
This quote is from one of my favorite books ever, and it it was impossible not to mention it when introducing our Art of the Month. As you know, this month we have the International Woman’s Day, where many of us will be on the streets protesting and celebrating what we are, standing for each other and raising our voices for equal rights and opportunities. And secondly, the arts featured this month were created while I was reading the book.
“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
The women's empowerment arts are shining in March’s stage here at Varanda! Just as no woman is alone, this months’s art isn’t, either. All the products displaying the “Whatever I want” and “It’s time” arts are on the sale section until the end of the month! But wait! Before you click away to check it out, you may like to know more about them.
Whatever I want was born in my sketchbook, hand-written with an ink pen. It consists of a lettering art that gathers some of the traditional expectations regarding females in our society. It exposes those demanding roles as a wake-up call, because, unfortunately, there are still a lot of people out there living (or feeding on them) without noticing it. The “logic” is broken with a disruptive "I am doing whatever I want" message, that hopefully will resonate as an inspirational push or as a questioning. Are you doing what you want or what others expect from you?
It’s time is a digital art created as a reminder. A call, hey! it’s time to look inside your soul, to recognize your feelings, your desires and dreams – only yours! And work for it, a little bit each day – thus the hair forming a fist raised up, one of the symbols of women’s liberation and feminist movements. And it’s amazing how each person connects to the art in a different way. You’ll have your own meaning for the “it’s time” message, and you’ll know it in your heart.
So, if you’re a woman in this world, or if you just know someone that would like the arts, you can check all the products available in the sale section of our website. By signing up for the newsletter, you get 10% off, don’t forget it!
For those living in Brazil, and as usual, these arts will have their prices reduced in my Colab55 studio as well. You can combine the low prices with free shipping offers or any other sitewide promotion taking place during this month.
And I’m always open for collaborations! If you would like to have these arts in any other kind of product, I’m more than glad to find a way to do that! Please, don’t hesitate to contact me. Plus, I can make special prices for wholesale or orders in bulk.
Now, go be yourself and do whatever makes your soul happy! 😊
