How do I share the parade on a silent canvas? This is my challenge.
In my quiet studio, in front of the calm white canvas, I close my eyes and go back to where I inhaled the spirit of the parade. The soul of the parade holds me close, guiding my brush and choosing my paint. I paint what I see, hear and feel, all that the parade says to me. She wants her moment not to be forgotten, vibrating to me her story. This time she wants me to remind her people not to forget the parade, and use it as a sign of hope through the challenge of the pandemic.
