Letting Go of Shoulds, mixed-media mosaic collage, 25.75" x 36.75", framed

Regular price $2,900

"Letting Go of Shoulds" is an original mixed media work combining stained glass mosaic and textile collage. A detailed textile collage is enclosed within glass (the girl, woman and flowers). Spirit animals (raven and owl) are formed using mosaic glass in the background. Flip through the images to view the process.

"Letting Go of Shoulds" is a process we all share when we try to release life's disappointments and regrets. Unhappiness occurs when we feel a gap between "what is" and "what we think should be". Discovering true happiness is our shared challenge of letting go our expectations and learning to appreciate what is.
