I made this piece last fall, having some fun with collage, stamping, and stitching. During the month of November 2013 it hung with a few other pieces of mine in a local church as part of their effort to bring the arts into the church. I was honored to have a part in that–I love seeing honest art in our churches.
The brave girl in the piece is from a stamp by Stampotique. When I first saw this stamp, I knew I had to have it. “Mary” is sad but sweet, and I want to tell this girl that she is stronger than she knows, and that things will get better. She shows up all the time in my own art journal!
This brave girl will appear in my Etsy shop soon!
