T-Shirt of the Month

LOVE is in the theme of the month! As I focus on it, I will share my thoughts, hopes and ideas around it. There are many clichés that follow the word, but there are great things that happen because of it.

This month’s shirt reminds you to seek the greatest of them all. Love.

Art of the Month

In 2021 the art series with examine moments in African American history in an attempt to UNERASE our past.

We cannot talk about African American culture without talking about food. Even though these food items can be found in many other societies, there is an endearment to the American community. 

It is believed that Collard Greens were brought to the United States on slave ships. They became a staple food because they could last through harsh winters and hot summers.

Ox Tails is the tail of the ox which is usually prepared as a stew or soup. Many cultures have recipes for this cut of meat, but it is also a staple in the African American community.

Our food becomes more than just a way to nourish the body.  Meals become a way of fellowship and communion for the community. Even though the meals might not be expensive, they are flavorful.  They create memories. They create bonds.

Art is a powerful way to tell a story. My artwork tells the story of a people who rise up from things that try to hold them down. They are made of great things.

This artwork is available on essential items. There are several patterns that have a deeper meaning. The purple circles remind us of God’s word that He knows the plans He has for us. We are different sizes ad different shades, but all with a purpose.

Things I Love

This month the photos will feature things I love, which can be a powerful emotion that can attach you to some odd things.

I am in awe of large bodies of water. There is something about the life that they contain, or just maybe that they contain life.
