I just found this on Toemail’s blog. I felt stunned as I’ve never seen it shown anywhere other than a poster that my Mom bought for me many years ago. Her gift of this meant a lot to me as it spoke of her recognition of my valuing all races and my love of music. The town I grew up in had less obvious race issues than the south, but I had evidenced and worked against the prejudice I noticed since early childhood. My Mother was Jewish and had faced her own experiences with prejudice. So I wanted to post this to honor my Mom, her valuing of my beliefs and work. And…because it is a lovely painting.
