Look Underneath and Beyond

" Though Winds May Blow" by Eleatta (c)mixed media on 11x14 tile $95

  I wonder what my kids will remember me for. I pray it's more than the stale "Clean your room." I pray it's the heartier things like "Love the unlovable." I hope they are quick to show empathy to their fellow human being. I hope that refrains of mercy haunt them all their days.

Several months ago I began making little paintings like this one. I wanted to capture the truth that there is always more to a person than meets the eye. Every individual has an unseen root system and an untold story. This is the biggest motivation to show compassion, I can imagine.
