"A Mother's Love", oil on linen, 30x24
This is my latest painting but I think I still have some "tweeking" to do. In the months to come I will be creating many portraits of children from Haiti - most with happy smiles. I'm working with a missionary who has been in Haiti for many years and was there during the earthquake. He is such a bright light in the lives he touches and he's an awesome photographer. He captures the beautiful spirit of the innocent children whose lives were hard even before the earthquake. His photographs also capture the sad moments and the devastation since the earthquake. I'm planning an exhibition of these paintings and a good percentage of the proceeds will go directly to his mission in Haiti. I want to put these innocent faces in the public's view so that we don't forget the major disaster and all that these people have lost and how much they need. More posts will follow.
