Balata, Palestine

Rafif chose the word الحياة which means ”life’ in Arabic.

Rafif is 11 years old and has a whole life ahead of her. She hopes that somehow it will be good, and that Palestinians will be able to live in peace. She doesn’t know what that will look like but she wants it badly.
I tried putting all those positive vibes into my piece by adding some movement and energy. I’ve known Rafif for a year and a half and she’s just so sweet and generous with everyone. It’s unusual for me to paint for people I already know!
