grateful girl series

This series began shortly after the 2021 American presidential election. I find myself grateful to hear calming voices coming from Washington DC. The new administration gives me hope. And along with that hope, I felt compelled to change each of the sad girls into grateful girls. Just like any good art teacher, I gave myself the assignment to transform the traditional paintings using Photoshop. You can see them here next to their counterparts.
