Don’t turn to another blog just yet.
It’s not about whether you agree or not,
but what happened in the process of painting!
I still lived in California when I was painting this,
probably in Spring of 2019 before moving to Texas.
Trump had chosen two new supreme court justices,
but not Amy Cony-Barrett yet!
I remember clearly, that I was so frustrated ,
since I wanted a male looking angel on the right
(probably because the last 2 justices
who were chosen were male).
Yet, no matter how hard I tried, a female face came out.
Also, I had already painted the foetus before
I moved to Texas, where I finished it tentatively in 2020.
Remember, I did not know who the next justice would be,
even less that we were so close for Roe versus Wade
being changed back to the individual states.
Another interesting feature is in 2019 I could not
have known about the corona-China virus, but the bridge
I painted leads up to the Statue of Liberty!
(This one is in the Chinese garden
of the Huntington Library Gardens in Pasadena, CA.)
My focus was on three angels
that would be important for that time of day:
community, liberty, and justice.
You can imagine that I was just as
surprised as you when I suddenly
saw the articles about Roe vs. Wade.
I think it’s a better road, because it should
not be up to judges what I want to do with
my body or not.
Love the transparency of glass.

Almost wilting, but loved the reflected light on these

There is not much sand in Yosemite, but took this capture
for a future painting, for I love the contrasts here.
