When a woman chooses to source her truth
from within her very bones, rather than
looking to a set of rules outside of herself,
she is truly wise.
These are the words typed on the side of the painting:
When she can stand up and speak a truth
that is boiling up inside her no matter how
big a risk it is to speak it, she is claiming her
wild soul, perfect and untamed.
When 5,000 years of conditioning is telling
her that her way is wrong, but she decides
right then and there that her way is right,
and in fact, always has been, she is finally

An odd thing about the words on the painting… I named the painting Stand Up, tentatively while I was painting. I found the words later in Kitty’s blog. I don’t know if I believe there are no accidents in life, but I do believe in synchronicity if you keep your heart open.
The woman is a super hero.

Nancy Wolfe Kimberly, aka Gator Girl, is lover of all things New Orleans. New Orleans is her muse. Wherever she looks she is struck visually and spiritually by her surroundings. Whether it is a Mardi Gras Indian in his dazzling suit, an alligator sunning herself along the bayou, or a quiet cemetery in the evening, New Orleans speaks to her heart.
When she paints she has two goals, to spread healing energy to the city and to spread the New Orleans attitude of love to the rest of the world.
Nancy Wolfe Kimberly is a New Orleans artist living and working in the Uptown neighborhood.
