peace dove paintings

These paintings are part of my series of peace dove art called Tribute to the Boston Marathon 2013. In 2013 I went to Boston to watch my daughter run her first Boston Marathon. What was supposed to be a day of celebration turned to a very, very sad day as we all know. I came back home broken-hearted. As part of my healing, I decided to do a series of paintings, drawings, prints, jewelry etc. of my favorite subject, the peace dove. The pieces are not about running, but about peace. Their message is love, hope, joy and some of them are just for fun. There will be 117 pieces, one for each year of the Boston Marathon until the year 2013.
