oil on canvas; 60×60”

“My painting is about connections and how so many problems we all face concerning various issues including armed conflicts and various disruptions fail to reach understanding without resorting to acts of violence. The lines of communication are broken and compassion and peace are never reached. The painting’s color palette references this as a primary concern.”
