“ Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” —Helen Keller

Embrace, Allison Adams Art, Las Vegas.jpeg

I made some art to help me process the collective pain of yet another senseless tragedy at the hands of a terrorist. If nothing else, making paintings, even quick ones, gets me back to a calmer place so I can process the world my own way...which hopefully, is in the direction of love and healing , rather than fear and loathing. There is a strange, divine mystery of moving toward suffering and sharing the pain of others (and one's own.) Our hearts are capable of stretching enough to carry one another in them, yes...even strangers. That doesn't make us comfortable, but it may be one of the better powers we humans have. That's what this painting is about for me. That's what this act of painting is about for me.  💔 #LasVegas
