I chose my favorite of the fables. The Grasshopper and The Ants. For myself that story connected, growing up I can see how Haitians were very much like the ants with the hard-working mindset. Being that it was Haitian Heritage Month when I painted it I couldn't not take this as an opportunity to represent for Haitians.
So I painted the Haitian Flag on the cup the Grasshopper is resting on. And gave the space and island feel as well, even slipping in a conch shell. I also made prominent the Haitian colors of Blue & Red.
Each artist is paired up with an Charity and our benches will be auctioned off to benefit them. Mines being Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition.
Check out the WPTV Channel 5 Story about them.
