I spent three days of my November Dubai trip on this mural in the old city center. I was looking for the traditional way to serve and drink coffee in Dubai. Rom @streetartnews and me found this lady and her Dallah. This traditional Arabic coffee pot has been used for centuries. The coffee culture in the Middle East is deeply entrenched, every decision is made over coffee. Thank you @branddubai for showing me so many of your beautiful traditions

The oldest of them is Keuri who I painted after I saw him playing Baseball with the boys. Baseball is huge in DR and so many talented players in the MLB were born on this island. Keuri took so good care about the littles, he is a great example of an older brother. All these kids have amazing social skills

I love this amazing island with all my heart! I'm blessed and honored that @evoca1 invited me to paint @artesanoproject What a wonderful way to end my 2016 painting journey and I can't wait to be back next year! Thank you @luicho_d @sean9lugo and
Girls, the world is yours! My wish for all these kids is that this school will teach them how to grow confidence and strength, be open minded and that one day they will be able to teach the next generation!

This work is dedicated to the wonderful children and their hard working teachers @eneida_m_hartner
I painted these two first graders after we met them @eneidahartnerafterschool Alexandria's and Alana's teacher, the amazing Ms. Gamboa, taught us about the school, the community and the families. 60 of this schools pupil are homeless, a lot of them already know what it means to struggle for life. There is no way to know about it and to not care! Both, Samira and I are in love with the RAW Project that is curated by the generous Robert de los Rios! Thank you @robertskran for making this kids life better and peacefuller! Thanks also @montanacans for the can support! Please feel free to join @therawproject_ and support the children in Miami!
