Never Give Up Hope

This is a mixed media painting I created for Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Awareness Month. The color for IC awareness is teal, hence the color choice for the background. I wanted to convey both the darkness as well as the resiliency and strength that comes with dealing with a chronic illness. Hope I did the subject matter justice.

Title: "Never Give Up Hope"
Size: 9x12
Media: Ink and watercolor
Paper: Arches 140lb cold press

Not familiar with IC but your artwork is awesome. The black/white against the darker teal background speaks volumes.

Amy, this is really beautiful. I know exactly what IC is being a nurse.

That background is amazing, and it really makes you central figure pop!
