"What Were You Wearing?"
This gallery is dedicated to all the victims and survivors of sexual assault.
The painting is inspired by the song Blackbird by the Beatles. After reading up to 50 of these “poems” I was in a dark place. I didn’t think I could paint about the subject. I started practicing guitar to try to get the images out of my head. I was practicing Blackbird. When you are learning a song you are focused on the notes, not the words. As I was playing the words popped in my head:
Take these broken Wings and learn to fly, all your life you were only waiting for this moment to be free.
That song is why I participated. Hope for a brighter future.
