Hope matters. In this world there is a lot of darkness, pain and suffering. Most people look fine but we don’t know what people have lived through or are living through. No matter who you are, we all need something to look forward to, we all need hope. In this painting I used different yellows to try and produce hopeful and joyful emotions. Yellow makes me think of Spring, new life and brings hope. The dark colours acknowledges that life contains difficult and challenging trials, some that come and go and some that just fade but never leave completely. However, in this painting the light has overcome the darkness.
