Seek peace and pursue it


Date: July 8, 2023


My mural concept, my grandparents, helped to raise me for most of my childhood. My grandfather dedicated lots of time to teach me to catch monarch butterflies, he passed away a few months ago. In my mural, I am including a butterfly to capture my grandfather’s spirit that lives through the butterflies. I am also including this quote “ Seek peace and pursue it” in Spanish “Busca la Paz y Siguela ” and “Without darkness, you will not grow to see the light”. I have been through a lot of challenges and seen the dark times, but just because there is darkness it doesn’t mean there isn’t light just about to come, and that is my perspective.
