I'm working on a new painting to benefit an aid project to Swaziland, Africa. It feels good to do something I love and help out a worthy cause. My ideas of a Jacob's Ladder coincided with this project and resulted in this painting called "Soul Passages: A Tribute to the AIDS Victims of Swaizland". The painting is not finished and I am still seeing faces in it and painting them in.
I want to paint happy paintings to lift the spirit but this one is turning out dark and sad. If no one wants to buy prints of it, I hope it can at least be used to raise awareness for their cause.
