Painting The Graduation Party 2020 final by Michelle Marcotte

The Graduation Party 2020 final

Lindy's daughter was graduating from university and she set up a lovely celebration for her, but this is 2020 and so the graduation party was for just two people and the cat. The poignancy of this photo reflected how the graduates this year had a key life experience omitted really struck me. Photo reference Lindy Dean Templeman, used by permission.
