Lincoln Continental is a Ford Motor Vehicle which was produced in 1939 to 1948 and again from 1956 to 1980 and from 1981 to 2002.  It has been very distinctive, a highly equipped luxury car and it has lasted the test of time.  Overlaid onto the top of the car are images of poverty, the reality of homelessness and the efforts of many to overcome it’s devastating effects.  Winnipeg Harvest is one such organization which provides food for various shelters and mission organizations in Winnipeg’s downtown core.  Springs Inner City and Feed My Lambs Mission are two organizations that I had the pleasure of volunteering with.  I was also a recipient of Winnipeg’s food bank after experiencing a divorce.  Depicted in this mural are two of my favourite people; Bob and Louise Buchanan who helped me paint murals in Winnipeg, befriending me and promoting me.  Giving is a process which is good for the soul.  In life, there will always be people who have more than you and those who have less than you.  The key is to keep that in balance and always remain grateful.  The smiley face of a homeless man reminds me that joy is a state of mind and it can be found in the most devastating circumstances.
