Standing Strong

By Diana Escamilla

About the piece: The CEO/owner of DXE Studios enjoys painting trees; to her, they represent strength and wisdom. But in this acrylic/ink piece (on canvas), she also incorporated a face mask. “I walked into Publix to [shop on behalf of] my mom. I felt awkward about wearing a mask, but I saw that everyone looked the same. … I realized that these masks not only were part of our fashion—but part of our history. Behind each mask was a person just like me, with the same fears, on the same mission—to keep each other safe.”
