Diversity Incarnate

This painting is based on a digital drawing I made for a client who commissioned this painting but then never returned for it. Though they never paid me for the hours I spent making the digital drawing mock-up, I personally loved the design so much that I made the painting anyway, knowing they weren't returning for it. I just know this piece is destined to find a loving home. I mean, how could it not?

From left to right, this painting features: a Black male-presenting person with dreads, geometric neck tattoos, and a nose piercing; a female-presenting two-spirit person whose wavy hair is somewhat tied back via a pair of symmetrical braids, and an Asian lesbian with a hearing aid. Below them and dripping with many skin toned paint, are a series of skin-toned butterflies. Flying playfully above their heads are five butterflies in the transgender pride colors of blue-pink-white-pink-blue. Behind them is a rainbow vanishing into the misty clouds surrounding them. Behind all of that is an abstract background featuring various shades of lavender in homage to the Lavender Menace (a wave of feminism that arose during a time when some feminists were excluding lesbians from feminism, much like how some "feminists" are excluding trans women from feminism today).
