This week I followed the prompts pretty literally. That's usually not the case. I tend to veer off in my own direction most of the time. Rather than focus on great acts of love in a historical sense, I decided to just focus on the concept of great acts. That led me to this wonderful quote by Victor Hugo.
The background was created using black, gray and white strips torn from a magazine. I wanted to focus on shades of a single color or non color rather and opted to cut the strips fairly thin. The background was really my interpretation of the quote. How great acts are usually the result of many small acts. I used the dark color palette to emphasize how these tremendous acts of love and kindness often occur in the shadows...in the darkness without witnesses and without praise.
