This piece is about struggle and hope. I painted the background first, knowing that I would keep the foreground stencil-like and monochromatic, but I didn't know what I wanted to portray. The African-American population is largely underrepresented by those who are not African-American. All cultures and all people experience different struggles and adopt different strengths and roots of hope. We are all connected in this way. I fell in love with this boy and the look in his eyes. The color represents the possibilities in his world.
