maira's halleluja

Like most in this nation, I have been wowed by the election, and inauguration of the first African American President of the United States. I painted for days trying to express my feelings. Frustrated in my efforts, I shelved the idea, for the pursuit of happiness, which is my right as a citizen of this great country.

Maira Kalman, in her New York Times blog, expressed everything I felt, and more. Follow the link to find all the paintings in Maira's 44th presidential experience. These paintings moved me to tears, I kid you not. Maira Kalman, you are a goddess of artistic expression. Hallelujah, the angels are singing.
