Signs and Symbols by Amanda Makepeace

For the next several weeks I’m going to use Wednesday’s to share art for sale in my Etsy shop. Signs and Symbols is an original watercolor painting, 6 x 8 inches. Here’s the story behind these objects:

I have a small knit bag from Columbia; which I bought at a market many years ago. It’s a tiny little thing for storing tiny little treasures. Inside I keep a turquoise stone (my favorite stone), an old key from our family’s 100+ yr old home in Virginia, and a pebble with a tribal horse silhouette. These three items have not left the tiny little bag in about 15 years!! I decided it was time to paint this little trio of treasure.
