sad girl series

This series began 11/9,  not coincidentally the day after the 2016 American presidential election. I find it numerically ironic that the digits are a reflection of the emergency response phone number and of course the 9/11 disasters. 
The sad girls began with A Piece of My Heart, followed by Merchandise & Broken Ladders. 

The Paris Accord soon followed and since that time there has unfortunately been no shortage of awful, mind-blowing behavior coming from the idiot in chief. The  Parkland killings, the gun violence, the children in cages the separation of families all speak to me, no, scream requiring me to paint for the sake of sanity and the need to voice my disgust.
