"Bind up the Brokenhearted"

"Bind up the Brokenhearted", 48" x 48", oil on canvas.

This painting is a reflection on various themes, mostly though, I was thinking of what we can aspire to when we are at our best as a nation. As it says on the Statue of Liberty:

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
