Hope and Despair. Amy McCarter

Hope and Despair.
Amy McCarter.


about this piece.
Amy describes these pieces, "These two go together as Hope and Despair and face each other if placed side by side. I participated with Kara Jones (Mother Henna) in 2009 with her collaborative effort to make a book about "The hero and the shadow". I used acrylics and the description of both Hope and Despair are writings taken from my blog."

about the contributor.
Amy lives in North Carolina with her husband and two greyhounds. Amy describes her journey, "Our only child Liam was born alive and apparently healthy on September 25, 2007, and was the joy of our lives. Our son Liam died soon after birth due to unexplained/unknown causes, shattering our world and our hearts. Art is an expression and release of my grief, and a way to honor the memory of our little man who is missed beyond words." Amy maintains a blog showcasing her Creative Everyday Challenge at Surviving the Day Every Day
