This is a mixed media painting on stretched canvas. It reflects a season of grieving in my life….where it felt like there was so much metaphorical death. And yet even in this dark time, I felt there was hope and a residue of beauty. I painted this over an old painting and I like how some of this is apparent in the layers; how even that speaks of the repurposing of old things into new things….that cycle of new hope.
