The Feminist Artists Gave Us A Voice

Image
This piece is about the fears many women have about using their voice and saying what they believe in.   I'd been studying 'The Feminist Art' movement of the late 1960s and was inspired by the strength and determination of these women. The Feminist artists stood against an established, male-dominated art world. Women were under-represented and invisible to the public and the Feminist artists fought to change, what had been the norm for centuries. I want to thank them for their courage and offer my sincere gratitude. Image: Spoils of Courage 2004 (sold), Mixed Media on Board - oils, wax, plaster.

Social Media Image Sizes

Image
I wonder if you're like me?  Every time I change my Facebook cover or try to adjust images for Instagram, I have to search the web for the correct sizes and formats.  Adding an image and allowing the platform to crop and resize it often looks bad. Below is a list of sizes for some of the most popular social media sites.  I gathered the info from around the web, but this is a link to a Hootsuite post that has masses of info for every social media site. All sizes are in pixels (px).
