Walking in Their Shoes

 i rode up to the southern arts society gallery in
kings mountain nc this morning to 
see my friend lucy warlick's exhibit

these are just a few of her paintings

they are all based on photos taken during the
great depression by photographers like john vachon..
arthur rothstein.. ben shahn...and russell lee

i lost myself in the stories for most of 
the morning

her goal for this series was to "entice people
to exercise their empathy muscles by putting 
themselves in the shoes of the subjects of
her paintings"

well done...my friend
