Good News

My Vision of Peace
My submission for the 2014 Peace Project is called "Good News".

I believe peace starts within our own hearts, in our own surroundings. This painting depicts the hands of my family, combined with dragonflies, which are a symbol of Good News in the Aboriginal culture. The love and appreciation that starts in our own homes, the way we treat our loved ones, can spread outward like ripples in a pond. I don't think it's always necessary to do big things - if we start on our own doorstep and appreciate other humans the way we appreciate those closest to us, if we respect the families of others the way we respect our own, we can't but wish for peace and harmony for everyone. Mutual support, understanding and inspiration is what makes life enjoyable, what gives life a meaning. Alone and isolated, we are nothing, and by hurting others, we only hurt ourselves - because as humans, we are all connected.


Medium
It's a tradigital artwork. The initial painting was done with gouche on cardboard, scanned and the colours then adjusted to warm, earthy tones digitally.
