This painting is inspired on the millions of people forced to flee their countries for economic or political reasons. This included countries from around the world. Refugees and immigrants from Asia, Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean countries, in their journey of hope for a better tomorrow. Many of these people perish in the oceans, while others succeed in their way to lands of opportunity. This is part of my series of abstract oceans. Canvas edges are 1.5 inches and are painted to match with the painting. Ready to hang.
