And then they face prejudice in the country they have entered, and people accuse them of taking their homes, jobs and benefits, when all they really want is safety.

Great painting, great cause.

I am remembering the man who had no face. I used to paint people and sell the portraits at art shows. Even in Yellow Springs. LOL

All of their eyes were extra large and looking up.

An empathic picture and accompanying picture Jafabrit. Succint and moving.
In this day and age there is no excuse for wars and poverty and people with no home place. We are not enlightened at all if we have not figured this out. So much hate in the name of faith or being right.

I am glad you posted this.
