Flexible Foundation

Strike a balance between stability and the flow of change with this inspirational image by Alena Hennessy. Featuring Virginia Woolf's impressionistic prose in an undulating, wave-like line ("I am rooted, but I flow") the abstract composition is evocative of dunes secured by sea grass, with the flowing sea and sky beyond. Woolf's words are set between these elements like the ever-changing water line, in a graphic homage to her novel To the Lighthouse. Hennessy's rendition of the sentiment is perfect for anyone experiencing a transition--graduation, relocation, or a career change. The durably mounted print of Hennessy's artwork comes ready to hang in a complementary, driftwood-like ash frame. Made in Portland, Oregon.

Alena Hennessy calls the positive mantras in her pieces "intentions" which she hopes leave people transformed, content, and open to wild possibilities. She views the process of art-making as a kind of therapy or healing, "one that brings us to quieter and more meditative states of being." She makes her home in Asheville, North Carolina, with her champagne fox Mimi Simone.

Our granddaughter did her senior thesis on Virginia Woolf. Saw the print in your catalog and that was it! Se loved it.
