The Wall is an original oil painting by Debra Keirce. The painting measures 1 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ with the frame measuring 4 1/2″ x 6″, frame included.
I painted this piece before “The Wall” became a phrase in the political zeitgeist. I was visiting Montreal with artist friends. Every day, several times a day, we walked past this wall near where we were staying. After awhile, I started to notice that I looked forward to passing by it and taking in the bright, beautiful colors. Each time I passed, I studied a new shape. The last few days of our trip, I was all smiles when I noticed something about it I’d previously missed. I was struck with how something as simple as a painted wall touches a part of me inside that craves beauty, and makes it smile. What if we all found a wall we could beautify and put more smiles into the world.
