Peace Antswered

My Vision of Peace
Peace is often found through compromise. In this piece, the two species of ants have been fighting over land and safety. Theirs is a world of constant danger and upheaval. They never know when the giant will return with his rays of heat to burn them. But instead of fighting something so big and powerful; they fight each other instead for the land they deem most safe. When the boy, "giant" compromises under good council from the moon.He promises to only observe the ants at night. That anxiety is replaced with relief and ultimately, peace.


Medium
Mixed media: graphite, ink, paper collage and acrylic wash on cold press water color paper.

This delighted me--thanks. I always loved watch ants go about their business of community work.

@ Poorgood, I love the suggestion of the moon having a glass as well. I just may have to work that in to it !
