This piece was finished the day before the 2021 inauguration. I almost always paint, then see what it looks like to me, or reminds me of, and name it. The day after hearing the poem read by Amanda Gorman, it was clear to me that this is "the hill we climb". And there are lots of hills..... There is also a peacefulness in the simplicity, as well as hope despite the grayness.
