This image depicts a loving and faithful pal, Stella, an almost human Basset Hound. She understands and loves family pack unconditionally. Her large mesmerizing eyes are the focal point of her being, and her faithfulness to her pack unwavering. Stella's eyes tell a story as old as time; that pure trust is grounded in a faith humans do not always have the luxury of understanding within each other. "You can get true love from some humans and ALL dogs." This piece is based in graphic design, utilizing type, form and image. An original photo was used as the base content, then manipulated in Adobe Illustrator to achieve multiple color blocks, which were then layered in thousands of lines of type, ranging in size from 6 point to as large as 400 plus point. The content of the text was derived from an old family favorite verse from the classic christian hymn - "Great is Thy Faithfulness". The background is adorned with the statement, "Faith is about trusting God when you have questions".
