The Okey’s Promise: Celebrating the Human Animal Bond project has begun! This is the first painting in the series, based on a photo of a young man named Isaac who lives in Rochester, NY.
The project will include a series of 10-12 professional artworks (approx. 48” H x 32” W each) that relate to the links between animal abuse, domestic violence and child abuse. These artworks will become a traveling exhibit that will be used locally by the Domest Violence Project, Inc. (DVPI) and other interested agencies at events and other designated activities to raise awareness about the issues of domestic violence and pet abuse.
My hope is that the project will travel nationwide. If you are interested in having it visit your city, contact me.
Each face depicted in the exhibit will represent the outcome that we seek – safe, happy children and animals – with the backgrounds depicting the artwork of youth on the issues of animal abuse and domestic violence.
