Karen, You have captured hope on a face like this! Sadness and optimism at the same time. You are truly gifted! Wow, O

Something about the way she holds her head makes me think she's a very strong person. I think she'll wait as long as it takes for whatever she's hoping for ...

This one really speaks to me, both visually and with the word choices.

It's so important to hold on to has been springing for me lately. Your drawing/painting/collage says it all. Great one. But then, they ALL ARE!

Catching up with your posts right now, and I love this one, the background colours are "springy" and the expression of hope is there in this face. Lovely
Take care
