I’m currently fascinated by the photos of Trump and Melania’s visit to the Shrine of John Paul II. Here’s our president, who’s just cleared the streets of protestors, posing with his wife as if for a wedding, with a silver cross in the foreground and angels and saints with halos behind them.

They’re both angry; about what, I’m not sure. But angry and calling on the angels and saints at the same time as the national guard unleash caustic chemicals on American citizens.

In my version, Melania stayed home. In my version, the haloed saints in the background are now the angels that are minted when one is wrongfully killed by the police.

There’s Breonna Taylor, There’s Dion Johnson, Tony McDade, and Aiyana Jones.

Aiyana Jones was a seven year old girl, killed in a SWAT raid in 2010 that was recorded by a film crew from the show The First 48 on A & E. The officer who pulled the trigger was charged, but never convicted.

There’s Sean Monterrosa, Tamir Rice, and Emmett Till.

Emmett Till was lynched in Mississippi in 1955. An all white jury found the accused not guilty, but the two men publicly admitted that they had done the deed a year after the case. They were never punished.

There's Ahmaud Arbery, Alberta Spruill, and George Floyd.

You will receive a 17" x 22" signed Giclée print on Hahnemühle German Etching 310 g/mA Paper. The image size is 14"x20" with a 2" border on the bottom and 1" on each side. This is an edition of 100.

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!

Eye Candy💕

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.
