The best response to the insurrection was strong for its humility.

After the mob was escorted out of our House, with trash strewn about, a lone man in a blue suit, began to clean up. “When you see something you love that’s broken you want to fix it. I love the Capitol. I‘m honored to be there,” said Representative Andy Kim from New Jersey.

It “really broke my heart.”

When I first saw the pictures of Kim cleaning up, it reminded me of when I worked with my neighbors to paint over some of the graffiti in my neighborhood many years ago. People told me that it wouldn't make a difference, that the tags would be back in a day, but that's not what happened. If something looks well-maintained, and you clean up new vandalism right away, people tend to leave things alone.

When Kim saw the mess, he got right to it. “What else could I do?” And I like to think that his actions (along with a huge police presence) were a large part of why nothing else has happened since. You keep things looking orderly, you clean up the damage, and the vandals leave you alone.

This is a small painting with a lot of heart.

The actual work is 7" x 10" and it's a study that I may develop into a larger painting. I really think the looseness of the study fits nicely with the subject matter. 

The actual print is just gorgeous.

I print this using a top-of-the-line Epson printer on archival Hahnemühle German Etching 310 g/mA Paper. I use pigment based inks that are certified to last over 200 years. It is uncanny how the print looks like the original.

The paper has a subtle texture on it that feels warm. Everyone who has seen these prints is amazed at how beautiful they are.

I am so excited to be able to provide something of such high quality at a reasonable price.

It fits in standard frames.

The original drawing is 7"x10", but the print has a 1/2" border on the top, left and right and a 1" border on the bottom, so the print fits in a standard 8.5" x 11" frame.

I am only printing 10 of these. They will sell out quickly.

Beautiful Depiction

The gentleman represented in this print is my Congressman, Andy Kim from NJCD3. I have been involved with Congressman Kim’s campaigns since he first declared in May, 2917.

Congressman is an outstanding representative. He is caring, involved, humble, dignified, and focused on providing the best for his constituents. This work has captured those qualities and I am amazed at the emotion this painting evokes. It is beautiful and I love having it.

The print was wonderful! We were pleased to present it to Rep. Kim and he was overcome. It hangs in his office.

Beautiful expressive print that captures a crucial historical moment perfectly!

If this moment in time had you worried about our democratic process and our continued fight for civil rights you will love this print!

The Big Rain Roses have not yet been hung -- they are leaning against a wall, waiting until my son moves out and I take over his room for office and crafting space. But the first day I saw these in morning light, I immediately smiled and thought to myself, "Confectionery!" The colors are both full and soft, the water-streaked effect is evocative, and the blue is particularly compelling (as seems to be the case in the Palm Court painting as well). My mother was a great lover of roses, but they are tricky to grow through Florida summers. These two prints give me both the memory of roses and the memory of my mom.

Palm Court, the painting takes me back to Palm Court, the place and my mind floods with all of the great memories of it.
