This mixed media drawing depicts a joyful moment between a father and daughter playing dominoes on a sunny day. The artist uses markers on watercolor paper to create a vibrant and colorful composition that contrasts the warm tones of the foreground with the cool hues of the background. The father and daughter are seated at a wooden table with a red tablecloth, where domino pieces and two glasses of lemonade are spread out. The father’s face is visible, revealing his eyes, nose, mouth, and beard. His hair is styled in short locs, adding texture and volume to the drawing. He wears a blue shirt with white dots and a red bandana around his neck, reflecting his casual and relaxed style. The daughter’s face is hidden, but her hair is styled in two braids with colorful beads, showcasing her playful and cheerful personality. She wears a yellow dress with white flowers and a green cardigan, creating a contrast and balance with the blue shirt of her father. The background is composed of a serene lake scene with sailboats floating on calm waters surrounded by green hills. Above the hills is a sky painted in hues of blue, purple, and pink with an orange sun setting or rising. The drawing conveys a sense of joy, connection, and nostalgia, as well as a celebration of culture and family. The artwork was featured in NowThis News as the artist spoke on the importance of celebrating Juneteenth.
