how do you paint peace?
36"x29" oil on linen 2004
i find i need to look deeply into this painting to provide an antidote to the images flooding my way as i walk down the avenue. rack after newsrack, each with a front page heralding destruction. years ago i was in perth, australia reading an art review concerning an exhibition about peace. most of the images in in the show were anti-war but few if any were really about the idea of peace. the title of the review was "how do you paint peace" i have been trying to do that ever since. i think this painting is close.
i ask you:
how would you paint peace?
how would you create the idea of peace in your music? in your writing? in your life?
please send thoughts. ideas and images my way- firstname.lastname@example.org
i will post your dreams...
