My Vision of Peace
This painting represents the vulnerability and empathy all people possess and the desire for a conflict-free world. The nude female is devoid of any clothes or ornaments indicative of culture or place in society to show that at a base level, all people are the same and have the same problems, concerns, and faults. Clutched in her hands is a dove, the symbol of peace, representing the need and desire for a life free of war and strife.


Medium
This piece was painted on copper-leafed canvas using oil paint. I applied the copper leaf to capture light and make the paint on top of it glow in an almost gem-like way, highlighting the preciousness of the subject matter.

This image stopped me. The description of your vision depicting vulnerability and empathy came straight to mind before I even got to reading it. Beautifully done.
