Art (“Esperanza” 36×48″ Oil on Canvas) and story by Margaret Biggs

“Esperanza” was influenced by the Expressionistic Movement of Northern Europe.These artists set realism aside in order to better express their inner life, personal ideas, and emotions. 
 
In this new painting, the trees are sentient beings evoking the emotions of waiting, striving and hope. Together they gather, a community striving to live a life of service, no matter what their occupation may be.  


“All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.” Alexandre Dumas
 
“Esperanza” is a girl’s name of Spanish origin meaning “hope, expectation”.

I LOVED doing my “Exploring Calligraphic Lines Thru the Trees” Workshop. 

I enjoyed giving them a new project each week of different tree styles & techniques. They all picked their own wording to go with each design.


Students have sent fabulous feedback and are still posting – we have a FB group for them. So happy that it went well!! I would love to do it again for other groups in the future.  


I truly believe, we were all connected because of the subject – everyone had such a beautiful feeling for the trees and the energy they all brought to the class. I was blown away and truly amazed.
