I have mixed feelings about revealing the end result of this 60"x48" painting I named "Faith". Coming from a Latino background the subject of immigration hits close to home for me. It breaks my heart to see so many people that look like me and my family dying trying to live a better life. My family did the same thing so I could be here living the dream and I'm blessed to be in my position, PRAISE GOD. Just yesterday the heartbreaking story of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his 23-month-old daughter, Valeria, really hit me. They were trying to get to America through Mexico and drowned in the Rio Grande in front of the babies mother. I couldn't imagine what that family is going through. I have a daughter around the same age and would do anything to protect her because she's my heart. With concentration jails treating our precious children like animals locked in cages I think what is going on in America. It's nothing new. This has been going on since the beginning of time. So many people risk their lives to come to a country that doesn't claim to want them. I don't have the answers on what we should do to make life easier for everyone and no government does. We were created by God and to be Governed by God. Nothing will be fully fixed until the glory of the Father, Son and Holy spirit shine through everything and LOVE takes over. Until then I will keep painting, giving back and praying for the Lord to end this. This painting is now up at BJ Spoke Gallery and can be seen until July 28th. 20% of the proceeds on this painting will go to a charity that deals with immigration (TBA). My heart and prayers go out to our kids that are caged, the people who died trying to reach the promised land and the whole world. Let's remember Oscar Ramirez and Valeria Ramirez. May God be with you.
