this piece started as all pinks and oranges – light and sweet… then it needed a little more.. more color, more texture, more layers. The left side was open and white and I wanted to cover it with words. I thought about what I wanted to say – I had a lot ideas, a lot of different thoughts about current events. Then realized the best message I could include is “I love you”. The most important message. Because whether we have the same opinions or not (about anything), the most important thing is that we are all human and deserve love and compassion.
