Tourist Couple on San Francisco Map panel with poem


8 x 13
This is another map panel painting. Initially on a San Francisco Bay area map there are details of Joshua Tree, and the Sequoia National Forest, in the background. The Man's shirt collar has hints of the King's Beach area and the Womans blouse has maps further away- such as the lake Tahoe area and additionally features words from a poem by Maya Angelou:
When we come
we must confess
we are possible
we are miracule
the true wonders
of this world
That is when
and only when
We come to it.

The closeness of the couple combined with the distance symbolized by the maps really makes me ponder where we come from and what we have to offer each other.
