This Martin Luther King painting is currently on a small tour in Atlanta. Needless to say, I’m very proud of this accomplishment and who it honors.

Martin Luther King Jr. by artist H- Heather Wilkerson
36×72 oil on canvas
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
This is one of the many quotes of Martin Luther King Jr. that always inspires me and encourages me to keep moving forward. I created this piece as a tribute to a great leader, and awesome preacher, and an amazing human being who continues to inspire our world with his great teachings and outstanding influence. I wanted to capture his spirit and remember him in a moment of reflection. In a moment that says, its ok to stand alone as long as you are standing up for what is right. I believe Martin Luther King Jr. is a great example of someone who stood up and said “I have a dream” and his voice was heard. I am extremely grateful for Martin Luther King Jr. and I hope as you view this work as a tribute to such a wonderful man that you remember something about him that inspires you. Thank you for taking time to view my work.
May God Bless you.
