The Justice Rides seem like they should be solemn, mournful affairs.

These protests, led by the NYC Street Riders, support the Black Lives Matter movement. Cyclists are raising awareness of and looking to end systemic racism. The riders protest to hold the police accountable for their actions.

But there’s something fun and exhilarating about these rides.

People are chanting, singing, the city flies by beneath our feet. You get caught up in the rhythm of the protest, the view of the next street, the next intersection, people on their stoops, people cheering you on, cars honking in solidarity.

The flag is meaningful. 

There is usually someone with a flag holding it high as the wind works to whip it out of their hands. To me there’s something deeply disturbing about the way the flag becomes a billboard, the freedom and patriotism symbolized by the flag obscured by the last words of George Floyd and Eric Garner.

My painting is hopeful.

But it also might make you feel a little uncomfortable.

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.
