    Description

    "Faith, Love, Respect" mixed-media acrylic, paper, glue and chalk, 48x48x1.5 on cradled wood panel.

    In response to incidents of violence, this work communicates how we can push aside society's pitfalls--those divisions motivated by greed and wrath--by way of the one truth: with charitable hearts, engaged minds, and deeds based on Christ.

    Faith in God (represented by the flame), charitable Love for each other regardless of origin (represented by the hearts), and finally Respect (represented by the crowns) depicting engagement with each other. The message is underscored by being translated into multiple languages.

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
