Hope is a thing with feathers...


This is a spread I just finished for an Art Garage Journal RR. The journal owner. Gloria, asked for the artists to "share your vision of Hope and your struggles with hopelessness." I chose the former. :-)
I started with the poem and found the adorable bird somewhere. Its collage, pastels, charcoal. and colored pencils.
I fed this page through my printer after it was colored and embellished. I made sure it was lined up perfectly first. It would have been a disaster if it didn't. Being somewhat dislexic, I have to turn my head upside down and watch the paper come of the printer to understand the orientation. LOL!
