Be Bold Collage Hanging at Gold Bar EspressoBe Bold

I loved creating this collage. Boldness is a vital ingredient in creating a fulfilling life. An authentic life of purpose requires courage and boldness to follow the stirrings only you can feel in your heart. Most people talk about their dreams and their “hopes” to fulfill them. It is the bold and courageous person who moves past the whim of hope to take action to fulfillment.

I created this collage on a canvas board using acrylics, tissue paper, art paper, ink stamping and jewelry. This is my favorite palette of colors – warm colors of Tuscany reminding me of my first European adventure exploring the art mecca of Florence and savoring a retreat in the Tuscan hills.

Each of my original pieces of art had a personal message from me on the back of the canvas.
