Thirst  18×18″ oil on panel, framed by the artist

The original is sold, available in lmt. ed. Giclees and Artist Proofs

Winner of the 2021 “Best of Show” in the “Our Rivers, Our Lakes” competition at the Grosse Pointe Art Center in Michigan.

Thirst captures that precious moment when our longing, that thirst for the object of our desire, the satisfaction of this most basic need, is finally quenched.  It is an inner ecstasy. It is God speaking directly to our soul. It is satisfying on the deepest level because it connects us with others who understand this feeling. It is immediate, it lasts but an instant. It is deeply personal and yet filled with light and peace.

It was a profound experience to be with these children as they realized that pure, drinkable water was now accessible and available in abundance.  It was a deep privilege and profound experience for me to witness this moment in November of 2014 in Jacmel, Haiti.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this and other Quench Project paintings will be donated to The Bread of Life Orphanage in Jacmel.
