"Hope and a Lifeboat"
ink, watercolor, coffee, and cut paper

Coffee you say? Yes, its true. I used it to stain the outside of the boat.

I did this for a recent show I was in. The theme was "hidden things." It's probably the most optimistic thing I've ever made...

This is really gorgeous. It totally inspires me to get my butt in gear and make myself some art for my craft room.

Thank you for all of the lovely compliments! I actually made a stand similar to what picture frames have in order to prop it up. It works really well.
