Tomorrow marks 3 weeks since the apartment fire… whoa.
Somehow it feels like a year has gone by but the images, emotions, and weariness are still fresh in my mind. With long-term housing figured out, I feel like I can now begin to jumpstart a life that was abruptly halted.
Family, friends, and strangers have shown unhindered kindness and generosity that has been truly inspirational. Never will I doubt that in times of need a community can come together and support one another!
The help I have received has given me the time and resources to finish something I started long before those flames ate my paper! I had previously been working on a project for a wonderful couple in Denver who had asked me to make some baby artwork. My pictures were sketched out and I had two out of the three pieces complete when… obviously… the unmentionable occurred. I had been right on schedule to get the artwork out to them around mid-January!
As I began to work again, I struggled with the feeling that the artwork was not my own but eventually got right back into the swing of things. This work has become much more than an adorable compilation of baby animals – it has become a healing process to rekindle my skills as an artist and to prove that no matter the circumstance I can continue to do the things I love!
Each baby card is 5″ x 7″. Please enjoy the artwork for little Wynn, Marlo and Ever (and wish them long and healthy lives)!
Enjoy! By the way, you can view my photostream on flickr: Click HERE!
