Prayers for the Ukraine, 2022
Artist: Whitney Dumer
About the Artwork: As a patriotic person of our country, I could only remember the pain that we felt during 9/11. Everything was starting to unfold in the Ukraine, and I felt helpless for them. The things that these people are having to endure and witness, is the epitome of tragedy. I felt that I would try to help in the only way that I was currently able to; through painting. This painting represents each and every individual in the Ukraine, and that is helping to fight for them and protect them. Like candles lit in their honor so to speak.
