Title is still being worked.
Oil on canvas, 2010.
The tragic earthquake that devastated Haiti almost two weeks ago has been unbelievable. I’ve watched videos of men, women, and children trapped for days under concrete rubble with broken limbs and unbroken spirits, finally rescued, but with nowhere to go.
I, like so many others, felt the need to do something. To try to help in some way.
So, I made this painting. The juxtaposition of ruins surrounded by beauty; walking away from devastation with nothing but hope.
