History lesson 101... We must learn from history. I am working on a piece that has come back around from a 'study' that I had sculpted in 2014. The original concept was based on the amazing photography of Dorothea Lange one of the most celebrated and recognized photojournalist in history. The project was intended to be a life size bronze in San Fransisco Ca. however the project did not go forward. I have watched as we are once again on the verge of repeating one of the worst events in Americas history. The Japanese American Internment must not be repeated. We are better than this. History lesson 101! Please share the post and stay tuned to see what I create from the pictures below.

As this concern weights heavy on my heart I must finish it in order to hopefully inform as many people as I can. This art piece will be one of a kind.

Time to create....come back soon!
