Shhh!



The Library, 1960 by Jacob Lawrence, The Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.


"Lawrence never completed high school but taught himself African American history, spending hours in the library researching legendary black figures and events to use in his paintings. " (Smithsonian website)

Have you seen Jacob Lawrence's Hiroshima series? His work speaks to me. There was a fine exhibit of his prints in Seattle in spring of 2003.

I completed High school, but unfortunately do not have the creative ability of this guy.
An Afro-European (A European who's home is Africa) but still evolving into an artist.
