The Gift of the Gnomes: Hope


This image started out as a part of a challenge for a class. The challenge was to use three words and pair them with a scale reversal. The words I used were: You, Gift, and Backyard. As I wandered into a craft store to purchase my canvas, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed these little gnomes in the garden department. I went over and just stared at them. Then, I arranged them on the shelf and took photos. I had no idea what I was going to do with this reference until I started preparing myself for the challenge…My Giant Gnomes spoke to me during the Corona Virus Pandemic. Thus they came to life!
