In an era when women were consistently and severely undermined in their pursuit of careers, subjected to suffering devaluation from discrimination based upon their gender, and oppressed due to underlying biases and exclusions from formal and equal academic educational training, twentieth century woman Violet Oakley defied the pressures of a male oriented society and lived as a professional artist, muralist, author, and professor at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
.
Pioneering for her times, she worked proficiently by producing an admirable collection of work for surrounding churches and academic institutions, as well as completing a beautiful set of interior murals for the Governor’s Reception Room, Senate Chamber, and Supreme Court Room in the Pennsylvania State Capitol. In addition, she published illuminated manuscripts and research of murals over the course of her life, and was the recipient of prestigious awards and an honorary Doctorate of Laws.
.
In light of the recent woman’s march, voicing the continued struggle for equality and women’s rights to be established progressively and permanently in our society, has great relevance presently to us. The society Oakley was born into a century ago vastly contrasts to our societal atmosphere of gender equality, as well as respect and acceptance of unique feminine needs inherently given by God to all women, which is reflective of advances to our collective human consciousness, dignity, and civilization.

‘Man and Science’ from the mural and octagonal panel series “The Building of the House of Wisdom,” conservations extracted from the Charlton Yarnall House
.
‘Michelangelo and the Dome of the Renaissance,’ ‘The Search for Light,’ ‘Aviation,’ ‘Communion Through Space,’ and ‘The High Tower’
.
‘Youth and the Arts’ completed in 1911
.
From this vantage point, the family of Man looks up to the octagonals overhead and can see the scientific inventions of light, communication, and the ‘Aeroplane,’ the realization of Leonardo da Vinci’s 1488 vision of a flying machine.
.
It is inscribed, “the soul between the material and spiritual theory of light.”

The Church
At the turn of the twentieth century, an upsurge in church building across the United States created opportunities for artists, architects, and designers alike. Oakley considered art and religion entwined branches of the same tree. The ‘Great Women of the Bible’ mural series in the First Presbyterian Church... demonstrates Oakley’s ability to transform a space into a spiritual, intellectual experience.
.
Her early commission for murals, mosaics, and windows for the All Angels Episcopal Church in New York, was a triumph that likely secured Oakley’s invitation to create the murals for the Pennsylvania State Capitol.
Woodmere Art Museum
.
The School
Oakley contributed her talents to schools and colleges throughout her career. Her first such project for Henry Memorial Library at Chestnut Hill Academy, was a eighteen-foot-long mural with biblical figures representing heroism, service, and sacrifice.
.
As a memorial to her sister Hester, Oakley created an Italian Renaissance themed living room in the college’s Alumnae house, with a monumental altarpiece of ‘The Great Wonder: A Vision of the Apocalypse’ from the Book of Revelation.
Woodmere Art Museum
.
The City
For the Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia, a private organization for women in leadership roles, she designed a bookplate showing ‘woman’s sphere’ as the globe against a skyline of Philadelphia. She also helped found the Philadelphia Art Alliance on Rittenhouse Square.
.
When the Philadelphia Award was established by Edward W. Bok to reward citizens who performed exemplary service to the city, Oakley was selected as the artist best suited to design the medal itself. When philanthropist Samuel Fleisher wanted to restore the church he purchased to expand his free art school in a diverse neighborhood in South Philadelphia, he hired Oakley to create an ecumenical altarpiece.
.
Through her relationship with Edith Emerson, director of Woodmere, Oakley encouraged the development of a museum dedicated to the artists of the city. All of these organizations, touched in one way or another by Oakley, are still in existence today.

Master plans should always be in motion
•
Sketches for a couple of new works I started this week. All my work starts like this, just little drawings. I redraw or project them on to canvas later. I started using an iPad Pro a few years back for part of the process, mostly to remix and riff on concepts and colours. But I always do it old school; with paper, pens, charcoal and graphite. I like getting my hands dirty. It connects me to the work. However you like to create, and whatever you make, always have faith in your own process.

In progress: “Mercy.” Oil on panel.  We’ll see how much I manage to mess this one up once I get after it with the palette knives... but for the moment I’m happy with my progress.

I’ve posted an image of the finished portrait here before—here are a few ‘in process’ shots, as well. This might be of interest to some. 
On the first day we chose a wardrobe, and I sketched in a pose with paint. That evening over supper, the family offered a series of critiques and suggestions that left me reeling, but they were absolutely right. The second photo shows the reconsidered idea—with a better sense, I think, of the subject’s personality and energy—and the third, the completed painting. Perhaps 8-10 sessions were required, and they were all a pleasure. 
Oil on linen, 48 x 36, 2015. Private collection.

Yesterday was made up of all day art-boobs-breast cancer-pink content in a really positive way. I'm very excited about what's ahead! Details soon.

I did a short video chit-chat for @pinkhopeaus in the city. I remembered what Mum had said in her parting letter to me, "Speak properly!" and, "No more yeahs!" (Whateva and innit hadn't been invented in 1994.) Sorry, Mum, very sadly this is one lost battle.

Anyway, I've never done such a thing before. I was as stiff as the Eiffel tower, a lil bit Cockney and forgot half of the things I wanted to say. (It's ok, you read them all here first. 😃) But the irony that the lovely Pink Hope videographer-photographer hailed all the way from Nashville was not lost on me!!! What was this? Dolly interviewing Dolly? Could it really be?! What were the chances? So... here she comes again.

In the aftermath I've cracked open the first aid kit for country meds and a good paintfix while I'm feeling emotional.
