In a dramatic change from yesterday's stark black and white entry, I chose to showcase this entry in a colorful background.
I thought "Hope" deserved color, since it represents such a joyful idea.
In case you can't read it, the sentiment reads "was born in the dark."
When I found this beautiful advertisement in my mailbox, I immediately knew I had to use it. It represents hope to me, especially after so many negative things have been written since the beginning of November. I believe it's time to heal, and hope is the catalyst.
I painted a background with various paints and stencils. I cut the word hope out and added it to the image. I hope it brings the calm it gave me when I created it.
