Prince/Rodney King tribute April 28th underpainting day 4

Laurie M. (born Minneapolis, MN)

Yesterday was a hard day, a heavy day. The weight of the 25th anniversary of the LA riots and the state of America since then. I placed a Rodney King sign at the foot of my easel as a reminder to all. Not a word was spoken to me about it. No questions, no acknowledgment.

I was selected to participate in the Metropolitan
Museum of Art's spring Copyist Program in 2017. 

I am currently doing a interpretative fragment copy after Francisco de Goya y Lucientes as a tribute to Prince who died a year to the day that I was in this gallery by chance last year when I heard the news. In that moment I was looking at this painting and decided I would do a tribute for him in the future. The opportunity presented itself and I was once again in the same gallery on the one year anniversary of his untimely death. Painting to remember his profound influence on me beginning when I was a young teen growing up in Minneapolis. He was the first person I saw perform live in concert.
