About The Artwork

Looking at these poor children, something struck me and I set my brush and paint to work... I tried hard to really depict them as impoverished as they actually looked, but my brush kept a mind of its own, touching on the vibrant colors on my palette... Reason? These people beg for a living and they seem not to care what it means to aspire for a better life or worry themselves about what people them seeing a meal a day is enough to be happy and content... Are they really poor? I asked myself deep inside....and then I began to see..... In life, people work so hard to earn a high standard of living, worry about what other people think, fight amongst themselves and hate others (within and outside the family) simply because of financial wealth..... As much as poverty is not the ideal life to live, these poor people know how to love and give... The love of money blinds us to so many things; the love we should share with our family, friends and loved ones, instead of wanting it all for ourselves and seeing the next person as an enemy. Money answereth all questions but family and true friends are priceless... Money won't advise you for free when you lose your way, money won't be honest to you when you are broke and have nothing to offer, money won't keep your soul warm, it can only buy you a heater... Then it struck me... These kids are really not poor, their soul is rich! because they find a way to make much out of a life that offers so little.
