This mixed media assemblage was created using a weathered, salvaged board as the canvas. Various elements, typography and painting techniques come together with the message that “Fortune Favors the Bold.”
People often mistake financial wealth as a sign of having “fortune.” I like the definition I found when I was doing research for this piece:
noun: fortune; plural noun: fortunes
- chance or luck as an external, arbitrary force affecting human affairs
If that’s the case, then two things come to mind:
- “Fortune” can be anything – one can be fortunate in love or business or health or, yes, even money.
- We can manifest our own luck by being bold enough to pursue our dreams.
In this art piece, American poet Mary Oliver (1935-2019) poses the timeless question:
“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Once you decide, be bold and follow your heart. It will not lead you astray.
Measures about 14” wide x 6” high x 1 1/2” deep (not including the chain). The piece has a painted chain hanger = ready to hang on your wall.
Thank you for looking and thank you for your support of local artists. It means more now than ever!
