Artwork Details

Directly inspired by my experience in the first Women's March on DC, this painting is my viewpoint just as everyone was given the go-ahead to start marching. Standing between the Hirshhorn and the Federal Building, the hats were an engaged sea of pink, at the base of the stone government building. Pink vs. Grey, with some infiltration both directions. It was a charged day, full of kindnesses (if someone dropped a glove, people moved out of the way) and hope. It was what Democracy should feel like.
