Did you know the full, offensive name of Rhode Island?; Being hostile to minorities is a poor way to build union power; BLM charity prints for sale

Charity print for the #BlackLivesMatter painting I did two weeks ago is now up! (🌟 LINK IN BIO) Available in two sizes, 12x16” and a much larger 24x32”. Sorry for the delay in getting this up, I was working behind-the-scenes with the girls’ families to sort out how the donations will be handled. ALL profits from this open edition print will be divided between the two featured ballerinas, Kennedy and Ava, to help support their academic and artistic pursuits, as well as to a scholarship in their name that we have set up with Brown Girls Do Ballet (@browngirlsdoballet) which will go to a black ballerina between the ages of 6-16 who would not otherwise be able to take lessons. 🖤 Special shoutout to the original photographer @juliarendleman and to my printer @bottleneck_josh. This is the first in what I hope will be an ongoing series of charity prints with proceeds to go towards various causes. Thank you all for the support, for anyone that purchases the print or simply shares this. If you have any questions or suggestions for future charity prints or how else I can help, leave a comment. #art #painting #illustration #blm
