PROCESSING
MY GUT REACTION TO OUR CURRENT POLITICAL CLIMATE

When I went to Canada this winter I crossed the border just before Trump was sworn in as president. Literally, I was at the crossing at 10 AM on January 20th and the swearing in was at noon. The whole campaign season was so disappointing that I couldn’t seem to focus on anything beyond leaving the country for a breather.
I anticipated I would spend my time painting, but I couldn’t settle, so I decided to draw. These drawings are the result. They are a metaphor for the drifting out of control feeling that I couldn’t shake in the face of our current world trajectory.
Fortunately, I have become more hopeful and I have started painting again.
