Painting Again

I'm painting again.  It's giving me the ability to sit, concentrate on something with meaning to me and hopefully to others.  I'm reflecting on the happenings in the world.  My latest painting is called Somebodies Sun.  It is an homage to the senseless murders of our Black brothers and sisters at the hands of the police.  This painting is not a statement about the wrong doings of the police or their motives but simply a reminder that someones child is DEAD.

It is an urging for all of us to seek the truth before acting.  If you just take a moment,  the truth will shine through 

the fantasies we believe, 
the lies we tell ourselves,
and the lies we hear.  

But remember, a lie is still a lie even if everyone believes it and the truth is still the truth even if 

no one believes it.
