Turn on the Lights

My Vision of Peace
Light represents knowledge, awareness, hope. A porch light signifies "Welcome."
A street lamp provides safety. A lighted city on a dark night, when seen from a plane, may awaken feelings of home.

A statue of a lady raising a beacon of light in the harbor of New York represents welcome and safety, home and peace.

The lights around the world may seem to be dimming, but people have the power to "Turn on The Lights" and dissipate the darkness through acts of kindness, caring and compassion.


Medium
This work is a 9 x 12" piece, gouache on Yupo polypropylene, saved as a jpeg image, cropped to 8 x 8" and digitally altered using Adobe photoshop Elements.

The painting was inspired by a friend's posting of a photo on Facebook - a view from his window of the Hudson at sunset. I love how beautiful images can be shared so quickly and easily through these social networks - another example of how easy it is to reach out to one another and "turn on the lights."
