Respect and Equality painting

which one is mineOn a whim I went to a free class for two hours to do a painting about Respect and Equality for all.  I knew what I wanted to do even before I saw the materials.  I wanted to paint black and white squares like a chessboard and then from the left moving right, the lines would be less rigid.  The idea behind that was to show that all different colors of people are involved in our world, it is NOT just a black and white issue.

In fact, I put two red pipe cleaners on the left to show that it is wrong to think in only those two colors.  Little did I know that there would be so many different things provided to add color and 3D look to my painting.  I used a LOT of buttons which you can’t tell by looking at these pictures, I also used a feather or two.

Other people visualized it differently and the result was good.  Someone took about 5 minutes to blob on different shades of brown.  I took the FULL two hours to do my painting. Some have no respect for what it takes to be artistic, time and patience.  I’m no artist but I have been feeling very artsy lately. I want to be creative.

Can you tell which one is mine based on the clues I gave you? My husband and I will go tomorrow to see this gallery of about 60 paintings. I’m looking forward to it!
