Say Their Names (May 2020)

14 x 18 inches, oil on canvas, in collection of the artist

This painting was done in honor of George Floyd, an unarmed man of Minneapolis, the week following his murder by a white policeman with his knee on George’s neck for almost 9 minutes while forcing the life out of his body. They can kill the body, but not the soul, has been proven by the mostly peaceful protests of this horrific act in every state of the United States as well as around the world.
