Chapter 3 in Taking Flight - Hope

This piece was inspired by some postcards I found online that were from a family's website and originated in Italy (used with the family's permission).  Inspired by the Italian heritage, I decided to make a stylized version of my grandmother Flora Mezzo on her wedding day.  The butterfly with the word "hope" represents the feelings all brides have on their wedding day, and especially for a young immigrant woman.
