Hope is HERE!

I named this painting after my sister-in-law HOPE. Her name suits her so well as her life is a true reflection of how much good & beauty is to be found all around you if you just take the time to look a little more closely.

In another life, before kids, Hope and I were business partners. We were in our mid-twenties and dumb enough to think we could leave our steady graphic design jobs and start our own company together. 

Lucky for us, ignorance is bliss. We didn't know what we didn't know. And so with the confidence of youth, we stepped into the unknown and built a little visual communications we were oh-so-proud of. 

Even luckier for us, was the backing of my dad's company and the nuts and bolts business expertise of my brother. Hope and I somehow managed to charm our way into the offices of dozens of little companies who needed their marketing images upgraded. But had we been left to our own devices with all the behind-the-scenes work it takes to build a company from thin air, I am not sure we could have made it.

So I guess the moral of the story is that it sometimes takes a whole family to birth a dream into life. My mom was the faithful cheerleader, my dad was the bank, and my brother was the boss who made us show up, and suck it up, every single day for all those months when our only work was making phone calls to strangers.

I would not trade those audacious, satisfying memories for anything.
