The "Piece of the Week" is another one that I have created for FAC's Milagros exhibit, coming soon. The title for this piece is "Behold The Child" and again my focus is on birth, the miracle of it and the importance of family.
My piece "Dancers of Praise" (below)has been chosen to grace the cover of the Yale School of Divinity's "Reflections Journal" this coming May publication. This piece was also was in "Threads of Faith" in 2004 and that was a national traveling exhibit curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi with the WCQN that started at the MOBIA. I am so very honored for that opportunity, this one, and at how God uses what I do.

This is my latest creation titled "Milagros-Mama and Me". I created this piece for an up and coming exhibit for FAC. The call for entries was presented that we had to enter pieces that reflex comfort, hope, peace, strength, courage, and little miracles. For me babies are miracles.
The mother in this piece gave birth in 1950 to twins, her first born. One of the twins died, Mona Carol and the child depicted here was suppose to live only for 30 days. Her age at the point in the piece she is 7 months and has live to be 60 thus far. I call that a miracle.

On Sunday I went to the "Walking To Success: An Anthology of Black History" celebration at Loyola Park Fieldhouse and ran into some of my favorite people. Below is the famous Al Tyler who's work I have love for many years. Al is a visual artist for more than sixty years and a graduate the School of the Art Institute and was also married to the grand Anna M. Tyler until her death in 2009. It was a good thing to see Al and great work.
Below I'm with another one of my favorite people, collector/promoter Robert Armstrong. We were hanging out with some of my "Darling Divas", smiling for the camera, and catching up on current events. Robert and Ms. Loretta Lee where there for Loretta to preform and to promote her up and coming show, "Remembering Billie Holiday". Loretta's performance at this venue was great and I know that her show for April 16th will be as well. So if you are in the area, do come out an support/enjoy Ms. Loretta Lee.
