Image is a visual art painting. It is acrylic paint on canvas. In the center of the painting, there is a silver metal shield with a pink heart in the center of it. Actually, the heart has the colors of pink, blue, and purple; the colors representing bisexual people. Surrounding the shield, in the top right corner are silhouettes of gang members holding guns and machete, the bottom right of the painting shows the continent of Africa and South America with the central American countries barely being seen because the bottom of the shield covers them, and the western part of the United States is barely seen to the left of the shield. The bottom left of the painting is the trunk of the tree of life and a little way up on the trunk is an old style telephone. The telephone is black with black numbers and grey background for the dial. The phone has a handle that you pick up and put to your ear and mouth. On the upper left hand corner of the painting, the tree of life branches spread out. One of the branches follows the top lines of the shield and on that branch is a black and white cat with the face markings of a raccoon. The cat belongs to the two women told in the story. The cat’s name is Lovelin. The colors represented on the background: the gang members' silhouettes are mostly black, their background is blurry dark green and dark purple as if they are in the jungle, the continents are green, light and dark browns indicating the terrain of the continents. The tree is lines of black, dark brown, gray, white, multi-colors showing shadows and depth.
Stories from Within – “Lovelin”
Currently Showing at ArtServe Fort Lauderdale – Sept. 17-Oct. 23, 2021
TICKETS: Opening Night Reception – Sept. 17, 2021

The image depicts the Muslim Brotherhood gang hunting down Lovelin after she and her girlfriend were caught being together in a nightclub. Her girlfriend was killed shielding her from the attackers. Lovelin fled her country in Africa traveling through many countries on foot. When she reached the southernmost border of Mexico, Vicki Rosenthal received a call from her and was able to provide assistance. She is now in the United States requesting asylum. The tree of life represents her current status seeking funds to hire an immigration attorney and starting a new life. (Vicki Rosenthal, the artist, volunteers her time assisting asylum seekers seeking refuge/protection in the US.)

Be a part of her story by donating to her new life.
