With damaged wings, its chance for freedom breaks off into colorful bits.
Desperate to escape and not sure where to turn to.
Ah, I can understand that.
"Unable to fly"
Acrylic paint on gessoboard - 6" x 6" (NFS)
:::: Close-up detail ::::
I've always associated butterflies with a beautiful kind of freedom so it seemed appropriate here. One of the people behind the event said the painting captured what the fundraiser was all about.
Unfortunately there's a flat fee of $30 at the door which guarantees each attendee a work of art to take home with them. I do believe this could've fetched a much higher price but it's their rules not mine. Perhaps those that see the painting will be moved to donate more to this important cause.
And while I've never been a victim of human trafficking, I think I can relate to what they must be feeling.
Isolated, broken, and like this butterfly....unable to fly.
