I was inspired to paint this piece because of some recent violence that took place in the community involving young African American teenagers.
I wanted to show the positive aspect of the youth from what else I see in my community.
My community is filled with young, energetic, creative & loving energy.
The portrait I painted represents the beauty and positive energy that exists in the urban community.
Peace & Love
