City of Hope Banner

 City of Hope Banner, 24 x 18, Silk Painting
A few months ago I attended a local City of Hope Chapter meeting to show my artwork and give a demonstration.  After a quick presentation of techniques, I invited the meeting-goers to come up and paint.  Together we produced this banner for the group, which includes the chapter name and the logo for City of Hope.
