Silhouette Process Paintings
The World is in turmoil, not only from an inner virus, also from the outer virus,
The universal cry is for Equality for all Humankind.
This painting came the week before the global outcry about racial inequality.
I was raised in a small town in Canada. My only knowledge of the African American culture came from the beautiful photos of my father, who spent World War 11 as a doctor in Africa tending to the sick. I loved the peace I saw on the villager's faces and the laughter in the children's eyes.
When I moved to the United States in 1965, I was shocked by the outright prejudice toward of the Black community.
My first gallery exhibition and series focused on the amazing spirits of the women of Africa.
My Soul is aching for the world to calm down and heal and yet, I understand the anger and sorrow felt by the injustice all around.
My Prayer today is to look to the future in our hearts and see the univere healed and happy and aligned with the grandeur and magnificent beauty we are blessed to experience.
We are the light and we really need to shine right now!
Mayor Jill Techel shares this reminder with us:
“We can only begin to heal as a community and as a nation by listening, by hearing, and by understanding. We must face adversity by facing it together and by finding strength and love in each other.”
