“I drew an image that is half and half, with an ocean featuring sea animals on the right, and a landscape on the left,” the description from Massachusetts’ artist reads. “I show kindness by caring for the earth and its creatures- whether by picking up trash I see on the ground or being mindful of the everyday things I do.
