Different Voices, Similar Songs--Mixed Media Painting

Different Voices, Similar Songs; Mixed Media Painting on Canvas, 8" x 10"

we look different from one another on the outside,
but on the inside, we yearn for the same respect,
we hope for kindness to fill the world,
we pray for the safety of our loved ones and our children,
we celebrate accomplishments,
we believe in goodness,
we dream big,
we survive life's challenges,
and we laugh at silly jokes.

we are similar in more ways than we are different.


Celebrating diversity,

Oh, Fannie! You need to post this on the class site! The grafitti background looks awesome behind your regular style. So cool!! I recognized this right away!
