Watercolor: In San Francisco in the 90's we found the streets lined with people holding up signs, "Marriage. 1 man 1 woman." I thought this made a statement about their bigotry. My daughter and I snapped many pictures as we rode through. I drew a montage of the pics in pencil and had a lot of fun painting it. $500
