About the tile:
My tile represents "HOPE." As the light from the lighthouses of North
Carolina give light to vessels looking for safe passage through the night
and storm, so, too, we, the World, shall remain hopeful. The colors of
the sky symbolize the American flag and its stand for freedom. I have
altered the colors somewhat--the red a deeper shade to share sincerity and
deep commitment. The blue, is "Carolina Blue" of the summer cloudless
skies of North Carolina. The color palette I have chosen is also
representative of the elements of life; wind, earth, water and fire which
are universal.
