Sitting with Carlson
Acrylic Paint, on Canvas '

This is a portrait of Carlson, a friend from church who I asked to pose for me. While I painted, he and I talked about our lives and shared our different and similar experience of identifying as gay individuals and people of faith.
Carlson grew up in Jamaica, and while our experiences and worlds differed tremendously, we knew that we were linked together by our desire to connect with people, know love, and experience Christ.
