I believe that most of us can enjoy and find value in a meaningful 'reminder' that helps give us strength, to remember, to think and to grow.

With that in mind, I am enjoying creating what I am calling "Inspirational Reminders".  These images are available as archival prints on paper, greeting cards and the original paintings when still available. 

* What I am thinking while creating these images may certainly differ from the meaning that you will get and feel from these works. Below I will share what I was thinking as I created this piece.  Enjoy!

The written messages in "HOPE":

“There is always a rainbow in the clouds”
"I find reason to HOPE in every situation":  
I believe that in any situation we find ourselves in that we can find something to HOPE for and to develop the habit of looking for and focusing on that will add quality to a persons life

In addition to the written MESSAGES in this piece, collaged & layered behind the scenes are:

1)  Rainbows - a rainbow is a symbol of hope and brings promise that the troubles of today will pass and that the rainbow will bring new beginnings and new prosperity.

A rainbow is a symbol of following our hearts desire and purpose and to get to the end of the rainbow is a symbol for celebration of that fulfillment.

The Rainbow tells us to hold on to hope and that we are guided to our hearts desire when we open to spirit to let it guide us.

 2) Sprouts -  represent new beginnings and new growth. I thought of sprouts to symbolize the growth of new possibilities one is hoping for.
3) Eggs in a nest beginning to hatch - represent new adventure & beginnings, promise, possibility and creation.

4) Maya Angelou with quote “Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay.” - Wise quote for thought from respected, influential American poet and author, Maya Angelou who was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Not hidden is a White Dove - a classic symbol of Hope and it is flying in for a landing!
