This painting is a redux of an earlier piece. That painting was tough to create as it was about race relations in America. So I decided to redo the painting and update it to be more reflective of our current times. What I did differently this time was to create space on the canvas that allowed for me to show that even though it isn’t as dark as it was in the past. Things are getting a little a bit better. It isn’t as dark as it used to be. That area is the mostly dark areas. The lighter area in the upper left is what I used to portray the current times.
