Mixed media piece that captures a snapshot of my life. I had an urge to express emotions through vibrant and energetic amalgamation of symbols from my homeland of Bosnia as well as Bosancica. Rich colors blend together to illustrate the struggles I faced when leaving Sarajevo, my hometown, and the hope I felt in starting anew. How many new beginnings can one make in life? Just like in life, I come to canvas with a clear purpose, yet I am never certain where it will take me. Another insight into my innermost thoughts and emotions while celebrating my faith in freedom and the strength found in creating a new life.
