"Hope on the Horizon"

I feel very privileged to be able to show my latest painting to you all. I was recently asked to do a cake for an upcoming dessert auction that will be held in honor of Royal Family Kids Camps, in the hope of raising funds for their annual foster kids camp this year. I've been looking for ways to use my art for God lately, and when I found out they were doing a silent auction as well, I thought that this would be a great way to help. So here's my painting called "Hope on the Horizon," and it's honestly one of my favorites I've ever done.

I had the hardest time deciding what to paint for the auction, but after realizing how symbolic the starfish is for their program, I knew this would be the perfect painting. Tyler helped me with it a lot, seeing as how it's based off of one of the pictures he took in Tahoe on our honeymoon. We spent half our honeymoon in Monterey and the second half in Tahoe, because I simply couldn't make up my mind between the two. And even though that hotel wasn't the greatest, our room opened up to the beach and this was the view we had every night. It was so very beautiful. Good memories!
