This new project is about honoring LDS women today, and celebrating their diversity. My other reason was to work on my skills as a new artist and up my game. I have now done 10 ladies and have been reasonably happy with them, but it has been much more stressful. I have had two artists tell me to be careful not to lose my style that I used on my "Forgotten Wives". My brother Steve gave me some great advice, he said to journal the process and share the creative process. So here is Kalani in both styles. I like them both, I like the second one enough to go back and redo another church lady and do some more ponderizing ( did really just use that word?)

This is Kalani, she lives in Texas. She is a single mother who does it ALL! She is a teacher, beautiful writer, Mormon feminist activist, volleyball coach, avid reader and question asker. I have had the pleasure of listening to her speak, she is a woman who is loved and respected by many, and a great role model to young women of color. She also has the cutest little kids on the planet and always uses the hashtag #lifeofazookeeper when posting pictures of her children. I am a huge fan of this woman.
