This started out as a pink floral but, I quickly got bored with it & decided to take it a different direction. I've had resilience on my mind the last year. I found this quote I liked by -E.V. (who after some research I'm still not really sure when or where they lived- I'll do some more digging)
Back to the quote which resonated with me...the only part I'd change is "people thought"... at this point I'm more interested in surprising myself & growing in ways I didn't expect. Surprising others is fun but, short- lived.

These presidential portraits where made when my son was a toddler & President Obama
won the presidency. I was so excited that kids would finally see
an African American as President. Representation allows you
to dream bigger & see yourself in ways you hadn’t before.
The last four years have been long & divisive.
It has provided new respect for the fragility & strength of our democracy.
I was proud to paint Joe Biden as our 46th president.
A leader who supports science, empathy, and opportunity for all.
I was thrilled to add the first African American, Indian American woman as
Vice President. Opening the eyes of little girls of every color
in our diverse country. We move forward even as some hold
on to the past. There is work to be done!

His teaching & wise words ring just as strongly today as we continue to open our eyes, listen & settle for nothing less than real progress.

Hope you're enjoying a quiet weekend with a chance to escape in a good book or two. Although reading has never been relaxing or easy for me I've always loved getting lost in the illustrations.
