Heart on my Sleeve




Heart on my Sleeve, 18×24″ oil on panel, framed by the artist.

The original will be available at auction at the Emite Annual Benefit, happening on November 18th. Hand embellished giclees and APs are available here and through Emite.

Heart on my Sleeve expresses the serenity and security produced by having access to fresh drinkable water. Water is a human right. It is also a source of dignity, particularly in far too many places in the world where drinkable water cannot be taken for granted. The painting depicts a young boy washing his hands with clean water at the well near the Faficha Chailaka School in Bensa Ethiopia. I am very excited about my collaboration with Emite, which has such a wonderful mission. I feel blessed to be part of its mission which raises awareness and funding for worthwhile projects across the globe. This image is part of Project 20 – for the Well of Hope, in partnership with Lifewater. I consider Heart on my Sleeve a continuation of The Quench Project, which began in Haiti and has evolved to encompass Flint, Michigan the Lowcountry near Charleston and now Ethiopia. Quench is about our relationship with water and highlights the wonderful work being done to bring fresh water to remote areas. It is also about spiritual desire and what it means to quench our need for meaning, our connection with God and with each other. The living waters image from the Bible comes to mind.

All profits from the sales will benefit Emite
