We can't choose family as the saying goes. We can choose our friends. If one has lots of family to choose from then one can choose amongst them. Sort of edit to just the ones that work out for you, I mean family, we know so well.

Barton Springs in Austin Texas gave rise to an organization to fight the developers and keep the pool and park alive and well. They have a storied past, those springs in this parched land. Save Our Springs, known as S.O.S., has fought to save the spring water and thus the environment around the springs.

This painting has been accepted into an exhibit scheduled for this summer at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island NY just a hop skip and a jump from the ferry to Manhattan!!! Hooray!! It is going to be a feminist them exhibit titled DON'T SHUT UP!" This painting I named "ME, TOO" in honor of the recent upsurge in people objecting to being objectified!
The exhibit DON'T SHUT UP got postponed by the pandemic until the fall of 2021. There is an online version of the exhibit that is quite beautiful and striking/startling.
