The Singing Tree

My Vision of Peace
Kate Seredy wrote a book called "The Singing Tree" about her father escaping the enemy in WWI by crawling all night long on his belly with his battalion. They saw no living thing because everything had been destroyed by war. When the dawn came, one tree had survived and hundreds of birds were in the tree who aren't normally together, singing. I'm doing a life long project making a forest of Singing Tree, inspired by this story and an 8 year old girl named Meredith Miller. She said to me, "What if the whole world made a painting together?" Our earth is like the Singing Tree of Milky Way. We can destroy each other, or create something beautiful together. I choose the latter.


Medium
Acrylic on canvas, painted with help from Lili Lopez, teen employee of my non-profit, Unity Through Creativity, http//www.UnityThroughCreativity.net.

This is so lovely...yes, what if we all made a painting together? We're creating Peace Walls in Los Angeles and Freetown, Sierra Leone as part of this project. Look forward to learning more about your organization as it seemed perfectly aligned with the mission of this project.

This is awesome. It is indeed a global piece. I love the idea that it's bigger than we are...and it is.
