Rejoicing in Our Differences

Lucy Synk's avatar Lucy Synk

These paintings, though in a deliberately "Americana" style, celebrate people from all walks of life engaged in pastimes we enjoy in common. Too often we do not see positive images, like Black dads playing with children, so I included some in Art Fair. Or handicapped people, so both Art Fair and Farmers Market include some. We need to see children of all colors enjoying themselves, side by side, to counteract media that only shows fear and violence, so these are also emphasized, from my own experiences and memories. This is an essential part of who America is, and our hope for America's future.
