8x10x3/4 gallery wrapped canvas with layers of paint and papers, lace and screen print.

Copies of vintage sheet music, an inspirational letter written to a prisoner in 1933, a hand written letter from 1908, along with the dictionary definition of hope, as follows....

Hope, a desire of some good accompanied with at least a slight expectation of obtaining it.

The birds on the branch are screen printed over the layers of paint and

There are layers of clear acrylic between the layers of paint and papers giving the appearance of depth to the piece.

Ready to hang.

Every day we hear of all the problems and catastrophes going on in our local area and the world at large. This causes us fear and depression. I would like to offer that we can learn and grow from each and every problem and catastrophy. And remember good, great, fabulous things are happening everyday too.

That is my idea with this plaque. I hope that when your purchase it you will notice it every day and remember to go through your day in a hopeful manner.

May you find joy and prosperity in all that you do.
