Heart on my Sleeve expresses the serenity and security produced by having access to fresh drinkable water. Water is a human right. It is also a source of dignity, particularly in far too many places in the world where drinkable water cannot be taken for granted. The painting depicts a young boy washing his hands with clean water at the well near the Faficha Chailaka School in Bensa Ethiopia.

Invest in The Quench Project
The original sold at auction for $15,000 and went toward building houses in Indonesia. All profits from the sale of reproductions of "Heart on my Sleeve" will be donated to the continuing work of Emite Charities.
A portion of the sale of reproductions from this image and all works that are part of The Quench Project Collection will be donated to The Bread of Life Orphanage in Haiti and/or other direct charitable causes where the money will have an immediate and powerful impact on raising the quality of life in places where people are struggling to overcome adversity. You will have a visual reminder and symbol of the indominable human spirit to overcome adversity that will inspire you to become your best self and remind you that you are part of making the world a little better than you found it.
I am very excited about my collaboration with Emite, which has such a wonderful mission. I feel blessed to be part of its mission which raises awareness and funding for worthwhile projects across the globe. This image is part of Project 20 – for the Well of Hope, in partnership with Lifewater. I consider Heart on my Sleeve a continuation of The Quench Project, which began in Haiti and has evolved to encompass Flint, Michigan the Lowcountry near Charleston and now Ethiopia. Quench is about our relationship with water and highlights the wonderful work being done to bring fresh water to remote areas. It is also about spiritual desire and what it means to quench our need for meaning, our connection with God and with each other. The living waters image from the Bible comes to mind.
All profits from the sales or reproductions of "Heart on My Sleeve" will benefit Emite.
