Rich with symbolic imagery, "Holding On To Hope III" includes the artist's hand holding objects with traditional symbolism such as good fortune and love (hummingbird), transformation (butterfly) and joy (blanket flower). Both hummingbirds and butterflies drink nectar from blanket flowers and, in certain cultures, hummingbirds are thought to be angelic creatures that carry messages from lost loved ones.
