The prompt for this week is hopes and fears.
I'm really pleased with the background in this. I just pasted down a few bits and pieces, gessoed, then scraped some acrylics - both liquid and thick - until it felt done.
After that a bit of black stamping was needed. I knew the words 'hope' and 'fear' would be next and I wanted them writ large. They were a little lost so an added shadow dragged them out of the background.
Then came the thinking part. What did the prompt bring up?
I thought about the shadow cast by fear in contrast with the light of hope. I don't want to be chained in the shadow of fear, unable to move forward, living in the dark.
I want to move towards that light at the end of the tunnel, the flame of hope.
I choose to live in the light.
