The world shut down in March. Quarantine and shelter in place are the new buzz words. Now we have the murder of George Floyd by a policeman. It comes at a time when we were just beginning to open the stores and restaurants. The peaceful marches collided with looters, who turned the demonstrations into opportunity that made matters worse. This is happening all over the world. Police and Armies have come out to 'control' the peaceful demonstrations by shooting them with rubber bullets and tear gas. I fear the worst has not happened yet. The clown in the white house is laughing at us all, while he surrounds himself with lap dogs and creates a fascist and racist state.
I am sadden to see our country torn apart by a leader who wants to eradicate all who don't agree with him.
My artwork is being affected. How can it not? What I am weaving are the elements of things that once were, banners that are discarded and forgotten. Like all the trash we create, once wanted and now thrown to the side, discarded and forgotten. The United States is falling apart. We have forgotten what we had as humans but 2020 is unveiling is more unsettling truths about our nation. #Black lives Matter and #All lives Matter. Our country has woven together lies that flew above our land. It is now torn down, discarded and we need to make a true just place that is really equal and fair to all. I am hopeful
