The Black Lives Matter protests deserve a monumental painting.

This painting is based on a series of photographs and videos of the clearing of Lafayette Square in Washington, DC. There are times in our history where a confluence of forces collide and everything is made clear.

This is one of those times.

Three different police forces clear the square.

On June 1, 2020, at around 6:30 PM, members of three different police forces gathered at the edge of LaFayette Square facing off against a group of largely peaceful protesters. Using tear gas, pepper balls and stinger balls, they pushed the protesters back.

And then the president gets his picture taken holding a bible.

30 minutes later, President Trump and his entourage walked across the now-deserted square for a photo op with Trump holding a bible in front of St. John's Episcopal Church. 

This painting is both small and big.

The artwork itself is only 14" x 20", but I painted it as if it were a 7' x 10' oil painting. I used small brushes and worked on it for weeks. For example, I probably spent 5 full days on the face of the young woman who has been pepper sprayed in the front, trying to get the right look and light.

You are buying an original painting

I paint using gouache, watercolor, and pen and ink on Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor paper. The painting is 14" x 20" and is signed on the back.

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.
