Defiant Hope. A 48”x60” original acrylic painting on a 2” gallery wrapped canvas.
The idea that hope is an act of rebellion. That it challenges. It’s feisty. Scrappy. This painting started with a heavy, black background and as it evolved more and more bright colors started to swirl forward. Kind of like hope fighting it’s way through darkness. Through grief. Through heartbreak. Through despair. Little by little until it takes up more space in your heart than despair.
