I have an idea for a canvas for my gd for Christmas. The idea has been growing in my mind for a couple of months. I want to make her a large (think 20x24) canvas of the song "I hope you dance" with pictures of her to match the lyrics. She is a ballerina and loves to dance.
Example: for the lyric "I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean" I am using a picture of her and her brother holding hands facing the ocean.

I need help thinking of pics for other lyrics, - giving faith a fighting chance - one door closes I hope one more opens - never settle for the path of least resistance - I hope you get the idea. Any ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks, micky

Do you have one or can you take one of her looking out thru an open doorway?

Not sure about faith. I picture in my mind, her (well, a little girl) overlooking a beautiful sunset with her arms outstretched, like she's reaching for the skies.

Her standing before a fork in the road. There are trails in the park here that fork off into different directions. Maybe a pic of her standing there like she's trying to decide which direction to take.

ETA: I just saw a photo on Pinterest where a group of people formed a cross with their hands. Looks like the photographer was lying on the ground. This photo.

Onekwa, I love those ideas. The doorway and the arms out stretched to the sunset are great. I am sure I can find one of her on a path.

Thank you so much for your help. What did you think of the one of her and her brother holding hands? micky

You're welcome! I'm sure the one with her and her brother holding hands overlooking the ocean is a great one! It will be something she'll treasure all her life!

Onekwa, here are a couple of ideas. what do you think?

this one for "giving faith a fighting chance"
faith fighting chance.

this one for "heavens above more than a glance"
give heavens

I love this one but not sure where to use it.

I think I will use one of her running in a race for track for "never settle for path of least resistance" because she was in 5th grade and was running with 7th and 8th graders, but had the attitude of trying her best even if she didn't come in first.
Appreciate your help and ideas. micky
