The city of Hialeah in Miami, Florida, put out a call to artist for murals to be created with the theme of education that would decorate the outside walls of the John F. Kennedy Museum and Library, so I created "The Future is Yours". Since learning is the music of the soul and reading is the dance of knowledge, I wanted my proposal to be fun and exciting, as well as, speak to the local Hispanic culture with tropical colors and whimsical patterns. I put in a musical note and a heart to symbolize passion for reading, but the words, "The Future is Yours", means that unless you seek knowledge you'll never be more than you are. This was the second rendering of the proposal. Ink and Colored pencil on paper, 11 x 14 inches.
