Stand Alone...

This is the third and final piece that I submitted to the Cloth, Paper, Scissors 2011 Artisan search.

One day my daughter and I were talking about life. She asked me for a quote and I came up with this little piece of advice, as I have felt this way most of my life. “Sometimes you must stand alone in the world….and be okay with it.” I chose to depict the quote using a palm tree… they just stand alone in the world in all of their glory… they give me the courage to stand alone when I need to and most importantly to be okay with it….

This method of collage I start with an all black canvas and then tear found papers to create my image. Acrylic paints fill in the background color.
