The morning after the election I woke up and sketched an image I had dreamt of the night before. I made it my Facebook avatar and soon friends, friends of friends and strangers made it their own. This quick illustration of a dream seemed to have resonated with many people and allowed them to express their sadness at the choice our country had made. I hesitated in putting it up on my site at first. My work is colorful and fun and meant to make people smile but I couldn't help but let the sadness seep into my art that day. Now that image is on display as a 20 x 20 in. print at the Broad Stripes and Brights Stars exhibit at the Ely Center in New Haven CT until August 13.
