What is Hearts of Hope & Love?
The mission of Hearts of Hope & Love is to keep art alive and show Hope Lives Here. Each original piece is painted to represent hope, optimism, peace, love & art.
Whether it's hanging in your home, business or blessing the person, it is a reminder that we are all in this together during an uncertain time.
SALAZAR began creating the heart paintings in his outdoor studio during quarantine. Every heart created helps Salazar get through this Pandemic, as well as keeps him home. The collection helps to sustain the gallery and his personal livelihood.
