Rock Star by makepictures Rock Star by makepictures
Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA.

Struggling today after the election of Donald Trump and wanted to post something that made me feel wonderful. A single voice/guitar can surmount large buildings in decay.  As the United States fades to grey for a time, it will help to remember that the arts can transform us when we most need that transformation.

Yeah, art can help. But it sometimes takes some energy to promote art!

People think of art as reflective in the sense of taking time and therefore plenty of sustained energy, but in political times art can also be reactive and I am looking forward to artists in that mode and what they may produce.

Love your comment about the shadow.  It's exactly the kind of thing that happens in the framing that I sense, but don't "see," and its so wonderful to have a sharper conscious eye tell me that its there.
