About: This painting was important to me. The slave that is reaching upwards is trying to grab hi way to freedom. All he wants is freedom. The symbol on top is for freedom and education. The stars in the background represent the dream of freedom. Every paint stroke holds a story in this painting. Every man, woman, and child has a dream to become someone or something else. If you believe that you can live your dreams, you are able to.
