Wanted


 
Wanted for crimes against humanity, the criminal now known as the butcher of Russia, for his merciless massacre of innocent Ukrainian children, men and women, grandparents and parents. Today we learn that many of the over 300 killed in the Mariupol Theatre attack were children and pregnant women sheltering after they had escaped the bombing of the Mariupol Maternity and Children’s Hospital.
 

 
This ongoing “Massacre of the Innocents” breaks all of our hearts as it continues unabated, with the fresco by Giotto di Bondoni in the Arena Chapel in Padua as meaningful today as it was when he painted it over nine hundred years ago.

crime against humanity


 
From Giotto to Picasso, from Guernica to Mariupol, another Massacre of the Innocents today with the bombing of the Maternity and Children’s Hospital of Mariupol, a crime against humanity that is a despicable atrocity that needs us to bear witness to in any way we know how. My drawing today, which will become a painting in due course, is born from a profound sense of helplessness and heartache that I know is felt by us all. 💙💛

sixteen sunflowers

 
Sixteen beautiful children have been killed in Ukraine according to the Ukraine Minister of Health with heartbreaking images that are hard to see. These sixteen sunflowers painted today are in their memory as we grieve the loss of their young lives together with all those who have lost their lives in these senseless crimes against humanity.

pedals to the medals

A golden day for Team Canada in women’s long track speed skating. Congratulations to Ivanie Blondin, Valerie Maltais and Isabelle Weidemann on winning gold in women’s team pursuit. This is Isabelle Weidemann’s third Olympic medal, joining her silver and bronze, and making her the third Canadian speed skater to win at least three medals at a single Olympic Games. Do we perhaps have our closing ceremony flag bearer, he asks?

Congratulations also to Canada’s Max Parrot on his bronze medal in men’s snowboard big air, to join his gold medal in men’s Slopestyle.
