Medium: Oil on Canvas

Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. This oil painting is full of symbolism that aims to make the message easier to transcend to people. The skull represents death, loss, problems (trials we have all experienced during the pandemic). The hair flowing on the face of the subject symbolises the current state of the subject, currently being challenge but through her eyes you can see determination and focus. The flower blossoming through the skull symbolises hope that exudes positive energy while the bee being attracted to the flower symbolises the positive energy that has been attracted by the flower. The message of the painting is, Despite all the challenges in life, never give up and know that at the end, everything will be alright. Let the Rise of Hope be the Aftermath of what we are all facing now (The Pandemic). Always carry hope within you as it will lead you to exuding positive energy that will make you attract positive energy as well to come to your life.
