10×20, canvas, “hope”

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge — myth is more potent than history — dreams are more powerful than facts — HOPE always triumphs over experience — laughter is the cure for grief — love is stronger than death.” Robert Fulghum

i’ve had one of those blissfully uninterrupted days, in the studio, headphones on, tea on the cup warmer that my sister-in-law gave me for christmas. it’s been raining outside, a constant it seems this week. the photo above isn’t the best, but you get the idea. i’ll scan her in at a later date, but for now a photo will do. i am loving using collage elements in my paintings. i stepped away from it for awhile, but now it’s back, thanks to artfest inspiration overload.
