• Thanks, Ilona!

      In Painting 101, we were given an assignment to find a quote we liked and use it for inspiration. I chose a passage from James Baldwin’s short story, “Sonny’s Blues,” which states: “For, while the tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted, and how we may triumph is never new, it must always be heard. There isn’t any other tale to tell, it’s the only light we’ve got in all this darkness.”

      This painting was the direct result of that quote. I found the original image in a book of WWII photos and just went to town.


      p.s. I find it amusing that this comment is longer than my original post.
