Peace Dove Rising is my new painting. Each year in honor of International Day of Peace (Sept. 21st) I paint a white dove. It’s a day is observed by people all over the world to encourage peace within and among nations. Last year’s painting was a night scene which I titled, Darkest Before Dawn because at that time things appeared bleak. This year I felt like painting a happy, uplifted dove. It seems to me that progress is being made. There have been new major agreements occurring between nations. Leaders, political and spiritual, are shining light on major problems in our world in which we the people can come together and solve.
My husband and I took our daughter up to New York City for college three weeks ago and are adjusting to being empty nesters, it feels good to be settling down a bit and getting back to painting.

Heni, this is so beautiful!! Happy Intl Peace Day to you too, and best wishes to your daughter. I hope she enjoys life and studying in NYC! Sounds fun and exciting 🙂
Thank you Renate! Yes we’re very happy for her. I’m going to try to be blogging more, look forward to reading more of your posts!
What a beautiful and uplifting peace Dove, Heni – I love it!
Thank you Melissa, that was what I was aiming for, I actually painted two of these and went back between the two, I found it challenging to shade under the dove, this one works pretty well.
