Title or Location: Quiet Desperation
This painting/illustration was created for my Art Therapy course taken at Edinboro University. The directive was to create a picture with words that described both sadness and hope. Watercolors seemed a fluid medium to use in expression of sad emotions. While the lettering of calligraphy showed hope. The quote from Henry David Thoreau about quiet desperation and verses from Amy Grant's Everybody Needs a Helping a Hand seemed a perfect balance. This is one of my favorite Art Therapy projects.
