Pieces like “Golden Mermaid” present a similar concept, where a warm pink light surrounds a relaxed mermaid. The subject, although supernatural, displays Vincenti’s talent to depict a peaceful portrait of tropical colors and figures. You can find this painting and more on his website.

This email made my day (my week and month, too).

Hello friends,

I received a really lovely email this morning that I had to share.

“Hope you and your family are all healthy and well during this challenging time. Not sure if you remember me, but I emailed you about a year ago about connecting with one of my daughter’s violin teachers, Rolando Freitag for the Suzuki strings camp that was supposed to be held this summer. Unfortunately, as you know, it was cancelled. My daughter decided to work on the Four Seasons, and just published her first youtube video last night.

Timucua inspired me over 15 years ago, and now my 9 year old has been able to create a video and hopefully future videos that will inspire others. Thanks for your great work!”

Here’s some inspiration for you from this very talented 9 year old and breathtaking NASA footage.

All the best,

Juneteenth Read-Along

Juneteenth For Mazie By Floyd Cooper

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when slavery finally ended in America. Although the Emancipation Proclamation formally freed slaves two and a half years earlier, the order was slow to take effect in Southern states like Texas and Florida. Many slaveholders moved further South during the American Civil War to escape the fighting. On June 18, Union Army General Granger arrived at Galveston Island in Texas on behalf of the federal government. The following day, Granger announced the total emancipation of enslaved people.

Sankofa Read Aloud presents a reading series on YouTube that addresses the need for representation of African Americans in children’s literature. The Sankofa Read Aloud page says, “ I believe that it is vital that African American children are able to see themselves within the beautiful stories that they read. At Sankofa Read Aloud, your child will encounter a variety of short stories written for them by amazing authors.” 

Juneteenth For Mazie by Floyd Cooper empowers children by teaching them about the liberation of African Americans.

Timucua also believes that children learn the importance of their identity through representation in the arts. Juneteenth For Mazie by Floyd Cooper empowers children by teaching them about the liberation of African Americans. Cooper’s character Mazie learns about self-value by honoring her ancestor’s journey to freedom. This year we invite you and your family to read Cooper’s book and celebrate Juneteenth.
