Final colored version of a holiday gift piece I did for a dear family friend. The idea behind it was a hopeful feeling, being able to find or create something beautiful and full of life in the midst of a difficult time.
The scan doesn't really show it, but there are tiny points colored with metallic gel pens to give it a shimmery effect. Touched-up the text because I had a helluva time writing block letters even semi-straight but oh well. That's the price of traditional art, right? lol
The stained-glass star idea came from not wanting them to be one solid color, and my never-ending love of all things stained-glass. Because sure, why not.
