Welcome to 2011. Time to renew our faith in humanity. The "New Dawn / Let there be light" painting was created to remind my students that the past can't be changed, but the future is still up for grabs, depending on how well we use our time here on earth. We have been given another opportunity to improve our lives, and the lives of the people around us. Let's not waste it.
The technique used to create the "stars" project was influenced by Islamic art. The "stars" are meant to symbolize the light within us. In a multi-cultural society, like Toronto, the acceptance and the nurturing of different cultures is paramount to the development of a civilized society.
