This series of paintings
is dedicated to
Shirley Day-Williams
(1934 - 1996)
for her faith and grace.

In the last 18 months, over 30 predominately black churches have been damaged or destroyed by fires. These fires have all taken place in the South and are under investigation, though some are not considered arson. These violent attacks whether related or not, raise complicated questions about the smoldering effects of racial hostility.
