Marni's love for mountains is displayed in bold fashion in this series. She felt led to create in an unfamiliar medium - oils - and produce a body of work that represented perseverance through hardship. These mountains symbolize that perseverance, and the stars represent joy. Marni's own struggle with infertility lends personal connection to this series. It has caused her to reconsider her role as a wife and as a woman in society, as well as respond to the ways that people pressure others to fit into a timeline.
Nineteen oil-on-canvas paintings (with a little gouache and acrylic mixed in) are framed with pine and ready to hang.
