I just realized I never posted the finished mural! I’m not the best at this social media game...I finished the sky (constellations), fixed some issues, and completed the birch forest on the far left. Varnishing the whole thing took some elbow grease.
Memorial mural in Dallas for Garret Foster, who was gunned down at a Black Lives Matter demonstartion in Austin, Texas on July 25, 2020.
A car drove an intentional path around and between several guide cars (the cars positioned to block traffic from entering the march), then proceeded to pull into the middle of the crowd.
When protesters walked up to the car to back him off, the driver reached out the window and opened fire point blank with a handgun, unleashing several rounds and killed Garett, who was pushing his fiance's wheelchair in the crowd.
Garrett is a dedicated individual who did not deserve this, and his fiancee Whitney is now left without her husband and primary caretaker.
Garrett will be sorely missed by his family, community, and now the world.
Rest in power Garrett. Mourn the dead, fight like hell for the living!
