Thumos by Sharon Phillips, from Little Hocking, OH
This painting is inspired by the Greek word Thumos which means the strength of a woman. Hidden in this composition are the actual letters of the word making it's presence subtle and intrinsic. As women we move through what becomes the tapestry of tests that create the background of our lives. Our faith in God and who He made us to be is the sun that sets on fear and rises in hope and more hope.
