Jamie Horning, using corn starch and food coloring, paints words of optimism during a global pandemic.

Several weeks ago, Jamie Horning began to paint messages of hope on a narrow side street in front of her home on North Fallin Avenue in Fayetteville, to countervail growing alarm due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Intermittent rains have washed away several of her brightly colored messages but when the sun emerges she simply paints fresh ones, for all who walk or cycle by.
