Brave Woman

12" x 12"

This valiant little woman, armed only with a spray bottle and a rag, is trying to save the world.

Another painting from a restless pandemic dream.

I'd watched a news report showing orderlies wheeling bodies on gurneys down a hospital ramp to an awaiting truck. Protected only by gloves, they lifted the dead onto the truck before energetically scrubbing each gurney with little spray bottles and rags.

I was painfully struck by the selfless courage of all the millions of workers risking their own lives to dignify and protect the lives of others, repaid with shockingly low wages.
