I am so grateful for art.  Sometimes, it's really hard to voice what I am feeling.  With everything that is going on in the world, art has proven to be the perfect outlet.  In the past couple of weeks I have had feelings of despair, frustration, anger and loss.   I am wondering where is the love.  At times it just begins to be too much.  I was able to work out some of what I've been feeling on this piece which I have entitled "I Shall Not Be Moved".  I painted it on a large sheet of packing paper.

I don't understand why there has to be so much hate.  I don't understand why it is so hard for us to learn to live together and respect one another.

Now is not the time to be silent.  We all have to stand up and do what's right.  Think about the children, think about the earth that we all call home. I'm still feeling frustrated and angry but, at least I can channel all of that into my art.  I'll let it speak and hopefully people will start to listen and begin to come together to build a better world for us all.
