Before I left on my trip to Haiti, one of my prayers was that my heart would be open to give and receive and to allow myself to feel what ever emotions my experience conjured up without shutting down. I didn't want to close myself off to what I was seeing just because it was hard and hurtful to see. I think that's what compassion is - allowing yourself to feel the hurts others are experiencing.
When I came home, my heart was full and I needed to find a way to express what was there.
Brokeness and pain, yes.
But also healing and hope.
This series of heart canvases is the result of that. There are others still there, waiting for the opportunity to come to live with canvas and paint and text. These are the ones I've completed.
If you want to see more details and closeups, please click on My Art page. I'll continue to update that page as new pieces are completed.
Thank you to all who take an interest. Feel free to contact me if you want to make a purchase or have any questions!
Peace and Grace,
