Photo and Painting

Marius sent a friend and supporter a new photo of himself and a recent painting of his.

About the painting: “This painting was done from a photo in the New York Times, taken in 2008.  The couple, Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, were a kind of ‘power couple’ among LGBT activists in the Bay Area for many, many years… they used their home as an organizing center and safe haven for queer folks looking for community and affirmation.  I thought the photo showed so much love between two movement elders- and I wanted to celebrate that kind of care and commitment.”
