mixed media on wood and canvas (acrylic, paper, charcoal, felt, soft pastels)
Miss(ed) America is the 2nd installment of the Stop and Smell the Roses series. It speaks to the Black and Brown women who have shaped this country, but whose efforts, sacrifices, and oftentimes, beauty, still remain invisible. Like the 1st installment, paintings were named after words in the following poem.
all needed in these times
of precious jewels
Stop and smell the roses...
