Painting Peace - an artist's get well card


"1 Peace"
5"x7"
oil on
canvas panel









This has been a horrible week for many people. The news has been filled with nothing but talk and images of war. Just thinking of how many children suffered this week, while I looked at beautiful things and tried to paint them, leaves me feeling down. I needed to change the "vibe" in the studio so I put together a little get well card for all of us.
I usually don't post on Saturday or Sunday but I thought this week required an exception.
