This is the second piece in a series of mine entitled "All in Our Hands". The piece itself is called "Heart of the World", a title inspired by the poem that wraps around the subject's arms. The girl in the blue dress represents the freedom to express one's individuality. She is faceless, like the other pieces in the series, to create a more universal subject to identify with. With this piece, I wanted to capture a fleeting moment of self expression and free spirit, while incorporating a poem that captures the essence of the painting as a whole. The painting is acrylic, 28 x 36 inches.
