My friend Tracey @vernontrace painted this. She calls it 'Help'. I believe her inspiration was the helplessness and torment relating to the terrible hurricanes pounding TX and Florida. I have a hard time taking my eyes off this mesmerizing image. I am transfixed on the shadows and highlights. I recall hearing art collectors saying they purchased a work because it "made them feel". This poinient image sure makes me feel. Tracey's figure beckons for help. But this image gave me a different emotional impression, that of strength... As if she's motioning and saying, "I'm here. I can help". I hope you feel something powerful and surprising while looking at this painting. Feeling... sure feels good, doesn't it!?!
