Absolutely wonderful! I love the composition, the rich colors and the type overlaying. All works together perfectly! Can you make prints of this? Will it be for sale?

I like it, too, Karen, but especially the story with the collage...the combination is intriguing, and yes, sad...and good.

I love this piece...it's so evocative! I really love your stenciling too!
I just found your blog through Carla's Sacred Life project and will be back again to have a closer look.
