 As I was working on this piece, I found the words "irrepressible joy" on my art table and they fit perfectly into the space I was holding for some text. This small painting could serve as a gentle reminder to remember what brings you irrepressible joy.

Materials: A small piece of salvaged wood with a missing knot serves as the substrate for this mixed media piece. Found text also includes the word "grace" (top left corner) while a scrap of vintage sheet music is on the bottom right. Two swooping birds add to the collage, along with layers of acrylic paint and ink.

This piece is lightweight, so it could be hung with 3M command strips or a similar product. It's probably best tucked into a special place on a shelf or even on a windowsill where light can shine through. The painting is finished with a matte varnish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
