Praying for Peace

Two paintings completed based on  a view from Buenos Aires from the near by Ecological Reserve.   The first painting below is a calm view of a city from a peaceful tropical oasis. "Peaceful City" I call it.

The second one is called "Praying for Peace" and in my view, the outstretched arms and glowing orange rays depicts both protection and anger. Anger as to what we humans can do to each other, anger that no one is saying "STOP!". Protection because we all need it.

Thanks for the inspiration from Xul Solar, amazing artist.
