New Hope (but not the Star Wars kind)

I have been working on a new series within my Learning to Fly series. This new batch of 9 pieces are 9x12 and are called 'Hope'. Each piece has a light background and dark textured land and safety lines with little birds taking flight. The light grey textured background is very hope-filled to me.  They remind me that each day I need to leave places of perceived safety and venture out into new lands.
