Sam's first painting in years is for children who feel powerless in a world that appears to be dying before their eyes. My hope is that the painting or print will be the last thing children see before they drift off to sleep. It is an image designed to empower children and offer them hope.
The painting was inspired by the notion of positive delusion, how thinking positively coupled with the power of visualisation can set in motion new ideas and frameworks.
In the painting a boy is yearning for the natural world. He sits with an Elder who tells him stories around a campfire about how we belong to the Earth and how we can take care of it.
