Inauguration 2021

Like many artists, I sketched what I was seeing…
Except when I was so transfixed, as in Lady Gaga’s Performance,
and the oh-so amazing Amanda Gorman, I could not sketch.
I watched and listened intently, joyous after so much stress.

During the evening the fireworks were some of the most beautiful
I’ve ever seen, and I knew they were a stretch for me to capture.
My impression, done the day after from memory, of the gorgeous colors with the Washington Monument in the middle.
All ink, with a Fineline Masking fluid laid down
before I started painting with inks:
Robert Oster, l’Artisan Pastellier, and Krishna inks.
