Today, I am thrilled to share my new oil painting with you, titled «Rebirth,» the final installment in my series. It portrays the circle of life, where the old world perishes, and a new era dawns.
The painting depicts an elderly man standing on a desolate field, carrying the burden of the past. He looks ahead at a massive stone gate, and two children stand at the entrance, gazing at a beautiful landscape beyond. They are eager to step into the new world with hope, leaving the devastation behind them.
This painting aims to highlight the contrast between the old and the new. The wars and suffering that may have been a necessary evil on our collective journey towards enlightenment. We must learn from the triumphs and failures of our forefathers to build a more peaceful and equitable world.
«Rebirth» is the final part of a four-part series, which commenced with «The Calm Before the Storm,» followed by «The New World Order,» symbolizing the chaos and confusion that accompanies the storm, and «Apocalypse,» which portrays the devastation that results from «The New World Order.»
My intention for this final painting, «Rebirth,» was to end the series on a positive note. I firmly believe that the future is shaped by our collective actions today. Despite the challenges, we can all play a role in correcting the course of events, and it is up to us to take the necessary steps to achieve this goal.
I cannot help but observe that Western societies have become sluggish and self-centered. They have become so enamored with wealth that they invent problems to find meaning in their daily lives. The concerns of the «Woke movement» seem laughable when compared to the struggles of the impoverished in third-world countries who must fight every day for sustenance. Instead of focusing on issues such as «gender,» or getting the latest iPhone, everyone should prioritize efforts to alleviate hunger and poverty.
More than three billion individuals live on less than $2.50 per day, and approximately 1.3 billion people live in extreme poverty, surviving on $1.25 or less per day. Can you imagine the hardship of going to bed hungry every night? Is it acceptable that 22,000 children die each day due to living in poverty? What should be our priority?
If we continually brought these pressing issues to the forefront of the news, we might have a chance of resolving them. Alleviating poverty is feasible, and we have the necessary technology and tools at our disposal. We only need to intensify our efforts and support ongoing initiatives. With everyone’s help and the determination of the underprivileged, we may be able to see the real light.
This painting reflects my optimism for a brighter future.
