Day 77 at Home: George Floyd

🇺🇸U.S.A. RACISM AGAIN!😠 THIS GREAT WATERCOLOR WAS A TRIBUTE TO GEORGE FLOYD, VICTIM OF ANOTHER CHAPTER OF RACISM MURDERED LAST MAY 25.
LAST SUNDAY THE NEW VICTIM WAS JACOB BLAKE. SOON WE COULD SEE ANOTHER WATERCOLOR ABOUT HIM, ALL THESE PORTRAITS SHOULD HANG ON THE U.S.A. FLAG ABOVE ITS STARS 🇺🇸 THANKS TO ART BY SUHITA.

Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook

This is who I’m thinking of today as protests happen, violence breaks out and the news moves to reporting them. The right and wrong of these actions is easier to turn to, to think about, and to report. But I wanted to paint this portrait to try and stay in thinking how unimaginably and wrongly huge this loss is, and what it must feel like to those who knew and loved this man.

This we all agree on: George Floyd should not have died. It’s especially important to hang on to that and remember a human being who was killed unjustly. There are deep-rooted problems around race to grapple with, consider, and discuss. Because the difficult stuff we avoid speaking of is what never gets solved and comes back. Again and again and again.

RIP George Floyd.
