8 x 8 Oil on Archival Board
For me, painting is a good way to avoid thinking about the horror that occurred in Orlando. My heart goes out to all those involved. This touches us all.
This is another in my art patron series...This one of a little girl with a huge backpack (and a teddy bear) studying Norman Rockwell's depiction of little Ruby Bridges, a six year old, headed to an all white public school in 1960. She is surrounded by guards and walks with determination and pride. The painting was one of many in the recent Rockwell show at the Taubman Museum in Roanoke, VA. I'd love to say things have changed since the 60's, but have they??
