my painting prac final for this semester! i’m procrastinating on writing my english essay by editing my documentation sigh
i’m really satisfied with this. my prof suggested that i paint the background a solid green, and repaint the legs to make them look more like legs. legs aint my thang, but i guess i’ll learn in figure drawing next semester yay. I’M GOING TO MISS MY PAINTING PROF SO MUCH. she rocks my socks off.
CultureHISTORY: The Civil Rights Movement
They were everyday people who became warriors for justice. They did it to give themselves and their families a better life and they did it for us. Those future generations seemingly so far off in the distance. For us they endured the lynchings, the beatings, the rapes, the murders, the attacks, the daily humiliations. For us.
Today, it is on their shoulders that we stand. #NeverForget
