Description These Boots are Freedom by RD Riccoboni. On November 15 2008 one of the largest peaceful protest marches took place in San Diego California. On this day as many other in the week following up to this Gay rights supporters waving rainbow colors marched, chanted and danced in cities coast to coast Saturday to protest the vote that banned gay marriage in California and to urge supporters not to quit the fight for the right to wed. I put on my marching boots along with over twenty five thousand other San Diegans and took to the street. The march began at Balboa Park went to downtown and proceded to the harbor and ended at the County Administration building, for a peaceful rally, where so many folks at one time were married. I believe it is the artists duty to capture these events in art. I came home and painted this. These Boots are Freedom, mine yours and ours.
