Small Acts

by: Amy Vangellow, Sarasota, Florida

Sometimes, when there is only silence, yours must be the voice that is heard.

Artist Statement

I am fascinated by the way small acts can make a big difference in people’s lives. We’d all like to make grand statements and do big things in life, but along the way there are so many opportunities to effect positive change. Often the results are greater than we’ll ever know. I used watercolor to depict this scene, because it introduces an imprecision and randomness that we see in life.
