wendy-sudan-225x300This is a painting I did that will be part of an exhibit for the Canvas Peace Project for Care International in Atlanta, Georgia Oct. 17th-Oct. 19th. I have been on the project committee for over a year now with our first exhibit last year at the Fairfield Arts Center in November 2011. It was a huge success and our main purpose is to raise funds to empower women in the village of Ariang, South Sudan. I am so proud of this project and excited that we are building awareness and that other cities are interested in hosting our exhibit. In this particular painting, I was really draw to the photo reference by this little girls eyes. My painting is called “Sad Eyes” as I could sense her sad eyes and trepidation. If you feel your community would be interested in an exhibit, please contact us at www.thecanvaspeaceproject.org Thanks for your support!
