A Village

36″ x 24″, acrylic on canvas, February 2021

I my travels to the north, I’ve noticed one thing about their communities that fills my heart every time: Community. Even in feet of snow, or sub-zero conditions, these folk are the type to make sure everyone’s got warmth and food. Perhaps we need a bit more of that these days. “A Village” is inspired by those small communities that stick together when even the planet seems keen on destroying them. In reflection, I will say that even the most prepared people can’t do it alone. Sometimes it takes a village.
