A Prayer for Syria
Oil. 20″ x 30″ $680.00
A Prayer for Syria was inspired by my dear friends who were caught up in the Syrian civil war. A daughter who wished to move forward in her life, and a mother in despair over her family and home. Their lives had been torn apart by the political upheaval.
“Have a Red/Blue Day” is an ancient greeting from the plains people, which means, “Have a Sacred Day”.
It came from the understanding that all life is sacred. Blue is the colour of sea and sky (and spirit) and Red symbolizes body and earth. My original intent was not to create a red/blue painting, but as I worked, I realized I was painting a blessing. A prayer for the souls those caught in the turmoil of the wars of money, power and man. A prayer for Syria.
