"Always" 6" x 6"
This piece is an extension of "Bulwark" which features a very special Sumac tree that was in our yard growing up. These sumacs are on across the alley way from my childhood home and to me they symbolize a shield of protection. I combined this tree image with an old photograph of my grandfather anchoring my mom (or my aunt) and this reminded me of the anchor and shield I have in God. When questions creep in about my safety and security. When I ask, "am I going to be ok?" I hear Him whispering back to me, "I'm never leaving. I have you in my arms. Always."
This piece is created using paper collage and oil on cradled panel. The collage materials are wrapped around the edges for easy display. Varnished with a oil-based retouch varnish and wired to hang.
