Douglas Beliakoff from Summerville in Georgia/USA, winner # 12, gave his second painting to his friend Rick DeBerry with following comment "This friend of mine has one the of the kindest hearts that I know. He is always helping others in times of need, spending time with family, strengthening friendships, and donating his time, efforts and resources to his community. I think you would be pleased with my choice to share your painting with him."
This is the hope Douglas sent us and the paintings are inspired by:
"My hope is for a better understanding and expression of unconditional love. Of each other, and of the earth."
