illustration friday (children)
The shoe is soaked with sea water. It was the only thing the tsunami left behind when it took the child. The words translate roughly to: What the tsunami left behind.
This is a re-post from my earthquake/tsunami series that I painted to mourn the lives and livelihoods that were lost in the triple disaster of March 11, 2011 (Japan).

So much to read and to feel in this print. Very moving.ReplyDelete
I was thinking that your painting is very sweet, and made me think of childhood -- until I got to the end of your description and realized what this piece is really about. More poignant for reminding us about children first. Great post!ReplyDelete
