Arab Spring

My Vision of Peace
This piece illustrates the emotional impact of the Arab Spring movement that has been affecting the Middle East over the past two years. Each flower represents a country that was involved in the uprisings, as they overcome the violence and political upheaval and emerge from the smoke and fire. Two olive branches frame the scene, which represent both Palestine and the possibility of peace and renewal in the region.


Medium
I used adobe photoshop for the entire process of making this piece, from sketching my ideas, refining compositions, and completing the painting. The full size is 28" x 36".

I feel the colors chosen here have strong meaning. The flowers are wonderful points of innocence and purity from all countries involved. Beautifully done and a story that needs telling.
