“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
Yeah!!! That’s what I was talking about yesterday!
Belize City Street Market – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor
This reference was super busy, with cars and junk everywhere. I
wanted to practice people, in the simplest form, so I eliminated a lot
of stuff. I have the buildings and perspective all wrong, but it was
the people I was after. I had a great time with this reference by
KreativeKay at WetCanvas. Oh, I added the dog and chickens from two of
Kay’s other photos. They just wanted to be in the painting, and since
I removed the cars, there was no danger of them getting run over.
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt October 11, 1884 – November
7, 1962) was the First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945. She
supported the New Deal policies of her husband, Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, and became an advocate for civil rights. After her husband’s
death in 1945, Roosevelt continued to be an international author,
speaker, politician, and activist for the New Deal coalition. She worked to enhance the status of working women, although she opposed the Equal Rights Amendment because she believed it would adversely affect women.
In the 1940s, Roosevelt was one of the co-founders of Freedom House
and supported the formation of the United Nations. Roosevelt founded the
UN Association of the United States in 1943 to advance support for the
formation of the UN. She was a delegate to the UN General Assembly from
1945 and 1952, a job for which she was appointed by President Harry S.
Truman and confirmed by the United States Senate. During her time at the
United Nations she chaired the committee that drafted and approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. President Truman called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.
Active in politics for the rest of her life, Roosevelt chaired the
John F. Kennedy administration’s ground-breaking committee which helped
start second-wave feminism, the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women. In 1999, she was ranked in the top ten of Gallup’s List of Most Widely Admired People of the 20th Century. (Wikipedia)
