Hope is FAITH

Because you asked, and I feel better about this piece, here is a full photo. It is a large 16x20 hard canvas with 1.5 inch painted sides. Lots of layers and texture. I started with layered print paper, tissue patterns and paint. The moon trees (that's what I call them) are print paper and vintage doilies. I distressed with paint ink and sanding. Buttons were added and I finished with a coat of beeswax. I have added the text by hand to the bottom. Quote reads "Hope is faith, holding out its hand in the dark" My paper doll was created and also collaged in this piece and covered with wax. Tons of distress. Tons of texture. A little dark, but aren't we all sometimes?

If you are interested in purchasing this piece please feel free to contact me. You can convo/contact me through ETSY. I will wait to list this after my fall art shows if I still have it available. Click here to go to my store.

I'm very interested in this piece if it is still available in the fall.I love how she has an almost 3d look to her.The piece may be dark but the writing gives it a fun feel as well.
