Readers 2, 24 x 24″ oil on panel
Readers 2 explores the desire to be more, the desire to learn. The joy of reading and growing is one aspect of daily life in the Bread of Life Orphanage that really struck me. That desire is being quenched, with daily classes and music and art. I was so moved by the way they take care of one another, the older children, teaching the younger. The haven is all about love and loyalty. They know how blessed they are and appreciate deeply every opportunity they have to learn and grow.
