In a pandemic when no one knows who is infected; everyone should wear masks not to protect themselves but to protect others. If they did the same then everyone gets protected.

Working on 'Route 66 with Curry'. Started with reference to current truck-stops where you can fill your stomach with asian Indian food and your truck with diesel. But, with these prints its also about legends. Don't you think? (See...#53 'Indian and Cowboys'. Experiment of not building from the center. Very unwieldy.)

#52. 'Ming Ho / Munn Haw (Beatrice)'. 77" x 77". Chinese brush painting, Japanese folklore, and Hawaiian flora designs. I knew mom as 'Beatrice' all my life. In helping her get a state ID I found she was born 'Munn Haw' but changed her Cantonese name to Mandarin 'Ming Ho' when she married. 'Beatrice' was given to her because the school teachers couldn't handle other than English names. (Hawaii in the 1920's.) NFS
Inspired by Li Huayi at the Honolulu Art Museum. It was serendipitious to find this cloth printed with a Chinese landscape design waiting for me back home. It was printed in Honolulu. You can see little figures in the print if you look closely.
'Munn Haw' & 'Ming Ho' translate to Day-Night or Sun-Moon, meaning 'Bright'. Add the character 'River' and it reads as Bright River, ie the Milky Way.
