A story of belonging.
Diasporas are amazing, aren't they? A little girl whose parents run a bodega in Belize speaking perfect patois. Syrians in Armenia. Jews in Mexico City. What a lovely world.
Another gorgeous piece, I've seen that softball scene as well and love everything it represents, you captured it all so perfectly.
I loved this. What a fun experience.
I felt like I was right back in that moment when you showed me this delightful scene--in person. You captured every little aspect of it with exact imagery! I’m sitting in a doctor’s office time traveling 🧭 to that joyous afternoon with you and Elena Rose. ❤️
I love how your images slow down the pace of the reading in order to savor the words and really think about them. Just curious about your lettering process: how do you ensure that there absolutely no mistakes?
universal and joyful
With your paintings and your words, you bring a neighborhood to life. I almost feel like I was there with you. Grilling meat, too. Wonderful!
I love arepas, also!
“Somehow, I feel more at home in these places myself...” It’s interesting, isn’t it, how when others are so grounded in who they are, that it gives a type of emotional solidity to those around them even if they don’t join in with that identity themselves. Beautifully written!
so beautiful !!
Candace, I just left you a gratitude bouquet over at Switter’s World in my latest post titled “Thank you.” See if you can find it.
Home is where our hearts are.
Not a sports enthusiast, but your art and writing had my full attention, full of heart and wonder and joy. Thanks, Candace.
Thanks for the tips!
