Sometimes, as an artist, I find that things are just too painful to express with words. And a picture comes that expresses better than I can, what I am feeling.
The painful story of Elijah McClain is expressed better elsewhere. If you are unfamiliar with it, I recommend reading The Cut's version of events entitled "The Killing of Elijah McClain". As you scroll down the story, you will see a photo of Elijah playing the violin for stray cats at a shelter.
This painting, "Where is Elijah?" is a tribute to his memory.
Rest in Power.
