Growing Hope

Mary Steenwyk's avatar Mary Steenwyk

“Growing Hope” This art project illustrates the energy and beauty of hope when lives are connected through creating. Hope grows when we share our faith, dreams, ideas, and our culture. This piece points to the love of our Creator who has given us the ability to create, communicate, and grow with each other. I have been collecting artwork (small drawings done in colored pencil and sharpe markers) from West Michigan children, children in Kenya, children in Mexico, and children in the Ukraine. The collected artwork will be imbedded in acrylic paint that surrounds the silhouette of a growing vine that covers several canvas panels (only one is pictured). If the artwork is displayed outside it will have a clear case around it with a heavy base.
