Dec 20th Tack Down Tuesday

"Peace on Earth"
8 x 8 collage on watercolor paper, matted all sides 2" to a final size of 12 x 12 ready to slip into a frame.

Materials used:
Stained tissue papers, textured gesso painted paper, magazines, fonts letters from magazines, pastels, dove and word image transfers, acrylics and glazing. Heat fused to 140 lb watercolor paper, polymer medium and UV stain varnish are applied.

Meaning behind the art:
The Dove universally symbolizes innocence, gentleness, faith, marital affection, peace and constancy."My piece here has an urban graphic feel to it"
The deepest kind of Peace and Faith is symbolized by the Dove. It's image stills our worried and troubled thoughts, and shows us how to find renewal in the silence of our minds. In such moments of stillness, we are able to appreciate the simple blessings that go unnoticed in the chaos that surrounds us each day.

The Sacred Dove serves as a gentle reminder that there is always hope, new possibilities and miracles waiting, just around the corner...
