Freedom

#210 Freedom: Today I wanted to do something a little more abstract and was Googling for ideas. I started thinking of using simple lines and started placing them onto the artboard. I wasn't really sure of what I'd do, but what appeared to me was rain... then I thought tears. I was thinking about the struggles indigenous people have endured and how "Columbus Day" is celebrated in much of the United States. All of that led me to think of people of color and the struggles we face in society. That's when Beyonce's "Freedom" song started to play in my head and I began to think of the deaths of unarmed black Americans. One big stream of consciousness.
