Proud of Pride

Peace Pride, oil on canvas, 12 x 12″, completed

This weekend is the Albuquerque Pride Festival and I will be there with my art at booth # 27. For those who don’t know, Pride is a festival that celebrates the gay, lesbian and transgender community.

My first and only time(so far) at a Pride Fest was a couple of years ago when Aaron and I went with my dad. My dad was a gay man and I have to say I was very proud of him. It can’t be easy to come out of the closet in a country full of hate crimes and discrimination. I am dedicating this show to the memory of my dad. He would have been here cheering me on and we would have had a wonderful time. So, in his memory, I plan to have a blast this weekend.

The Pride Fest runs thru Saturday at 8pm. Saturday morning there will be a parade down Central Ave. into the state fairgrounds. There will also be concerts and a pet parade.

I had planned to do a whole series of paintings for the show, but only ended up with time enough to finish one. “Peace Pride” is available for $300, plus I will have prints available for $20(13×13″ matted) and $8(6×6″ matted).
