Hope: A Tribute to Paris

Stutz Artists Association exhibit

Hope - a Tribute to Paris

This piece is acrylic on canvas and was inspired by the terrorist attacks on Paris, which left me feeling blindsided and dysphoric about the future of life and beauty as we know it. As I started painting, my sadness lifted and I wanted to express a sense of light and unity, with a beacon of hope for the future. It is called Hope: A Tribute to Paris.  It seems appropriate to reintroduce it now, after the recent violence in Nice.  This painting, along with the Katrina Trilogy, were featured at an exhibit at the Stutz Artists Association/Raymond James Gallery, entitled “Can We Talk?  Miracles, Memories and the Power of Things Unsaid.”
