I love doing splatter paintings, where I just create by throwing and pressing and then let it dry and see what the painting wants to be.
At the time of doing this my son (I would read some with him) was reading Anh Doh’s , “The Happiest Refugee”: I was really taken by this book and the hope it was filled with. Anh and his family left Vietnam under terrible and trying circumstances, but they made a great life here and our country is better off for having him here.
When I painted my splatter painting, all I could see was these refugees, or this journey, from pain and difficulty towards hope.
