This post is a part of my "Dear Sons" Collage Series. The original post is can be found HERE.
In early January, I shared a letter I wrote to my sons about my hopes for them. The letter inspired me to create a series of collages that I hope to finish by the end of 2016.
I finished the first one and I wanted to share!
This collage was inspired by this part of the letter:
My hopes for you are that you...
KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED – Yes, you are loved. No matter what.
It was fun to create.
Make it a HAPPY Day!
One morning last month, as I woke, I found myself mentally composing a letter to my sons. Because of the powerful way the letter spilled from my dream into my waking reality, I knew these words could not be ignored. So I grabbed a latte, sat down at my computer and this is what I wrote.
After I finished the letter, I got the chills. I knew that what I had written was from my heart and it felt important. I also realized that these hopes, while inspired by my sons, are not just for them. They are what I hope for everyone I love and even for myself!
So, in effort to have a visual reminder of these sentiments, I plan make a piece of artwork for each hope listed in the letter. My goal is to finish all 12 pieces this year (hopefully well before December).
This week I drew some sketches and am really excited to start to add color and textures!
I will give updates and share pics throughout the creation process.
Have a Happy Day!
PS - What are your hopes for your loved ones?
