Mixed Media Artist

Precious


This is a 3″x4″ mixed media painting on wood. The sides are 1.5″ and are painted lilac blue.
This painting is $40 and is available HERE.

Last night while my children lay in bed and I sat on the little stool in their room reading them the book ‘Witches’ by Roald Dahl, two teenagers were struck and killed by a transit train just blocks from our house.
The juxtaposition of two children safely tucked into bed while only blocks away two lay under tarps was not lost on me.
Two young lives gone, just like that
Today I will hold my babies a little tighter and a little longer when I think of you.
I dedicate this painting to the girl and boy who died. I feel so sad for their families and for the driver of that train.

  1. Your post breaks my heart. But, yes, a sad reminder to love while we can love and hold while we can hold. My prayers go out to the families bearing this loss.

    I love your artwork, and look to see what you’ve created each day. I will be turning 60 in January, but your posts take me back to days when my two beautiful little girls used to dress up and dance and entertain us with their wonderful silliness. Maybe those memories also keep me coming back to your site, to live those special days again through you and your girls.

    Again, your artwork is truly beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with the world.

    Smiling,
    Leigh

    The importance of living each day fully in the moment, to the best of our ability, because you never know….

    What a tragedy.
