    Hope is our nature.
    Alcohol markers on paper
    I think hope comes naturally to anyone going through a hardship or a difficult moment in their life. Hope can be the only motivation through those moments and if hope were to be something, I think it would come as a form of nature. For my artwork, I knew I wanted to represent hope as flowers and butterflies. Their beauty and radiant colors show how hope brings light, positivity, and courage to our lives. I realized it was important for the character to have eyes close because it’s the moment when there is peace and a vision of victory. I believe that with hope comes courage. Hope has the power to call our deepest inner strength, it’s what keeps us going through the battle with the hope that one day things will get better.

    In the end, the drawing came to be even more beautiful than I imagined, I truly enjoyed the process through the different sketches and ideas inspired by a hard but inspiring journey filled with hope and courage.
