Amy, Rene, a sheep, a goat and Justice for All!

Hi all y’all!

This crazy cool thing happened this week.

Let me back track.

In February 2013 I painted Justice in honor of marriage equality. I felt strongly that these two women existed out in the world. I put it out there over and over, “Does anyone know a couple that looks like this painting?” I offered a print in exchange for a photo.

Here they are.

I saw this photo and thought, “Wow! Except for the blonde hair this is them!”.

Rene (short for Irene) said, “How did you know Amy’s original hair color is red?”.

Seriously, how cool is this?

For an added bonus…

The quote that I have on my painting is, “The moral arc of the universe bends towards justice”- Theodore Parker. We see this is true when we watch state after state passing marriage equality laws. The full title of the painting is And Justice for All. Kind of gives me chills.

Loving the world,

Gator Girl

  2. by the way, we hadn’t met when she painted this painting. so…she painted us into existence!!! And this week, May 22nd, 2015, we’re getting married and she gave us the original painting as a wedding gift.
    A more talented and generous and wonderful woman just does NOT exist in this world!

    1. Thank you for painting us into existence. It’s been a long and windy and sometimes painful road to Rene, my soulmate. Forever grateful, Amy
