Title: Courage
Materials: Acrylic, modelling paste and resin on canvas
Size: 25cm x 50cm x 3.5cm


The words read "Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak but also what it takes to sit down and listen" - Washington.
This is a phrase that is very dear to my heart and something that I have tried to instill in my children. Sometimes easier said than done. The mountains symbolise the standing up to speak...and the earth sitting down to listen.

It is painted in rich earthy tones and a taupe colour. The ground is heavily textured and the words have resin over them creating a really glassy appearance. Very difficult to get a good photo due to the contrast in colours.
