The suffering of innocent children during the senseless and selfish actions of war was the impetus for me to paint this 48" X 60" oil on canvas painting, Omran, Angels Are Here!

Several months ago I became obsessed with the news image of the little five year old boy, Omran Daqneesh, in Aleppo, Syria, who had been pulled out of the rubble of a bombed building and placed, bleeding, alone and forlorn, on an ambulance seat. His hopeless, dazed, vacant expression haunted me. The blood dripping down the side of his face onto his shirt repulsed me. I felt powerless as I longed to reach out and comfort him. The idea of somehow sending "angels" to attend to him and be by his side came into my mind's eye, and I knew that I needed to "speak" with my painting talent to share these feelings and bring angels to comfort Omran.

The depiction of angels interacting with humans has been used throughout art history. I am grateful for the work of Andrei Rublev and William Bouguereau for details and inspiration in helping me find the right note for the angels in this work. Painting this was the only way I felt empowered in the face of such insane world events. As you view this painting, may the ideals communicated therein bring to you joy, hope, peace. Thank you.
