It takes a special kind of courage
to cling to HOPE
and learn to trust again
after being crushed
a world-full of Hope
makes room for rediscovering
This is a mixed media collage made with walnut ink, acrylic, mica, distress ink, wax pastels, and acrylic ink on wood panel primed with watercolor ground. The fabric paper doll was made by adhering a piece of hand painted muslin to grunge board and then attached to the background painting. Beads, pearls, and other embellishments were added to complete the collage.
