This week for Website Wednesday I would like to nominate The Burning House. It asks what you think to be a simple question... " If your house was burning, what would you take with you? "
The website describes the question as " A conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities."
Take a look!

This week for Sketchbook Sunday I would like to nominate artist Abbey McCulloch. Based in Queensland, Australia but born in New Zealand, Abbey has been named one of Australia's 50 Most Collectable Artists by Australian Art Collector in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Her work she says quietly ruptures the boundaries between the ideal and the real, embracing the beauty in our imperfections.

In keeping with my previous post and the thought provoking speech from Emma Watson, this week for Website Wednesday I would like to nominate HeForShe. HeForShe is a newly launched UN campaign, promising a commitment for gender equality. This human rights issue I believe is to be one of the most important issues of now and is a strong step forward to taking action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.

I was completely blown away by this empowering speech that Emma Watson delivered at the UN. Just recently appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, Emma Watson launched the new campaign HeForShe, a movement dedicated to ending gender inequality.
I hope you take the 12 minutes out of your day to watch this, to think about the words and the meaning behind this campaign and begin to make change in your everyday life. Not only is this speech empowering, but it's reassuring that these matters are now having a voice, and Emma delivers this with such strength and poise.

This week for Sketchbook Sunday I would like to nominate American artist Pat Steir. She has been an influential artist for decades now, developing recognition in the 80's by her technique that involved applying paint exclusively by dripping and flinging it onto the canvas. Pat Steir has always searched to understand the relationship between artwork and its audience, pushing her audience to find their own meaning of her artwork.
