Metaphorically, the composition of this painting is inspired by the song, "I am the black gold of the sun" by Nuyorican Soul (and Rotary Connection). In the painting, Hurricane Katrina (2005) survivors of New Orleans await rescue. Empty busses, police, and the coast guard trap or hold back the people seeking dryer, higher, safer land.
