Hopeful is an abstract acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas inspired by the coronavirus pandemic. The masked person is surrounded by the chaos, hustle and bustle common to urban areas as well as germs from the coronavirus. The person sees red but cries blue tears of hope. The yellow and green around their head represent thoughts of a bright, prosperous and healthy future.
