Peace & Conflict - "Empire"

This is the second painting that I entered in the Peace & Conflict show at the Coast Collective. It is my interpretation of one of the statues (Castor or Pollux I'm not sure which) in the Piazza del Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill in Rome.

There is a lot that can be said about peace and conflict in the Roman Empire, but for me on that day it was about the way the sun was hitting those magnificent marble statues, what they represented and feeling very privileged to be there.

Peace and Conflict

This was one of my entries for the "Peace & Conflict" show at the Coast Collective . It starts tomorrow and runs until November 15.

We were encouraged for Remembrance Day to interpret peace & conflict in any form. I chose the painting I had done last April, as something that represents my faith. A faith which can leave me at times internally conflicted but also has given me peace.
