Katrina, waiting for relief. by Sandra Gray

Katrina, waiting for relief. by 

A woman waits for help after Hurricane Katrina, wrapped in an American flag. Her image depicts the shame that I felt that our country couldn’t come more quickly to her aid.
She personified the tragedy of that stormy season seen all across the media world wide. Acrylic on canvas original 24"w X 36"h.

I am a retired Elementary school teacher(retired in 2003), artist (Painting-Acrylic & Mixed Media), poet, and photographer. I like the challenge of composing and capturing straight out of the camera. Last summer I started Gray’s Photo Tours. The concept is to provide guided photographic tours or Photo classes for visitors of this scenic area and portraits on locations of their choice. My moto is “I specialize in NOT specializing.”

    We just went through terrible fires here on the Central Coast, which you know, though they mostly stayed inland sparing homes and lives. The firefighters were terrific, and the number of people here from FEMA were a bit nervous, and being extraordinarily careful to make the entire episode error-free. But I wish you’d added a Louisiana flag to the drapery here. That state’s corrupt and greedy politicians have never cared a whit about the population. The rest of America cared a lot.

  • Barbara I couldn’t agree with you more. Your comments fuel my passion for sharing my art. Thank you so much. Soon as I have enough art work for a calendar, I will start uploading photos. I have more than you would believe. Photography has been my main focas for the past year.
