Title: Hope Acrylic on Linen 24" x 30" x .5" (2007)
The homeless person wrapped in a blanket sitting on the sidewalk (lower left) is offered the warmth of the sun and the dark of night just like the man that has a home. One is not favored over the other. Metaphors abound. Is the man standing homeless or being smug and passing the homeless holding his hand in his pocket to hold on to his spare change? Is the sun a flower or is the flower a sun? Does this sun/flower (sunflower) represent rebirth?
