When I create artwork using a girl or woman, I like to place the quote where her face would be so the message or quote is read vs what she "looks" like. I've had this wooden doll form for a long time and felt she was the perfect fit for this application. The overall "frame" is an antique clock body, which feels like the perfect boundary. Behind her are old hand-made accordion reeds made from brass, aluminum and pieces of leather. Her quote is placed on a round brass disc and the housed in antique door hardware. I chose to have her hug herself as she tells herself that courage message. This was a powerful piece to make.
