I made this as a reminder for myself!
I put all sorts of symbols in this piece. I used bold strong letters to portray the idea of strength. I added thorny rose brushes to the letters, for growth and to symbolize protecting what is beautiful within us during those challenging times.
The leaves on the trees are changing colors in autumnal hues. Change is constant in life and when trees lose their leaves it's to conserve their energy during the trials of winter.
I wanted to show the roots of the trees, since I feel like my roots and family are the source of my inner strength.
