The Peaceful Pyramid Scheme

Joel Schoon-Tanis's avatar Joel Schoon-Tanis

The Peaceful Pyramid (smaller test painting shown) takes the predators and prey from the Peaceful Kingdom and adds some whimsy. The Peaceful Kingdom, while being an Old Testament image, has long transcended religion as artists over the centuries have explored it. In this day of divided ideologies and poor public discourse, I love how whimsical art, featuring a child-like view, might be a bridge to better thoughts. Inspired by conversations with leaders from the Salvation Army I will seek to point people to the idea of "doing the most good" (the motto of the Salvation Army).
