I appreciate the universal theme to this exhibit ‘Strong Women Move Mountains,’ but my painting has a more personal aspect. With this painting, A Stroke of Red, I pay tribute to my good friend, Alyce, a strong woman who planted the seed of our friendship when she took a young me under her wing on my first day of a new job. Alyce looked for and nurtured the potential in me and allowed me to grow, giving me room to make mistakes and learn confidence, compassion, discipline and strength. Alyce was also an artist, as well as a strong woman, and an inspiration. - Linda Peduzzi
