"Be not afraid"

be not afraid

Strength In Numbers

be not afraid


be not afraid

Be not afraid.

be not afraid

There is often a fear of the unknowing...
but always keep in mind that we must not be afraid.

be not afraid

I have been formulating new ideas to work on for few weeks now, I wanted to incorporate fabric on wood with paint. over the last two days I have been working on a few of my ideas.
I like the juxtaposition of the hard against the soft.
I truly enjoyed the added dimension I got from the thick wood that I used for the base, and I was so pleased that at long last could use a few old rusty nails that I have been saving for just the right project!

be not afraid

Happy 2010!
