Art Sanctuary

"Sanctuary"
30" x 30" acrylic and collage on canvas

ART SANCTUARY

I would always choose to be the person running
rather than the mob chasing
I would prefer to be the person laughed at
rather than the teenagers laughing
I always admired the men and women who sat down
for their rights
And held in disdain the men and women who spat
on them
Everyone deserves Sanctuary a place to go where you are
safe
Art offers Sanctuary to everyone willing
to open their hearts as well as their eyes

You have done so much great work over the past few months, that I sometimes forget to savor each one. This one really sends me someplace special and wonderful.

Thanks Hun.
