This painting is beautiful in daylight and even more lovely in the evening light.
This painting is inspired by protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline from Standing Rock. In my ears, I play Native American drumming as I paint. I feel shaken by the taking away of rights, the minimizing of entire groups of people, the disregard for American tradition. It’s freezing outside, yet the tree stays fixed in the earth, waiting. Wind blows. We feel the bluster. It is cold, but we are calm. In our hearts, we know what is right.
