Recovery Through Art

I've been home for a week and I am finally feeling like I want to rejoin the human race. Since the death of our granddaughter, I have felt this deep need to express my feelings through art; to somehow attempt to put down on paper the images I have in my head. I think this will help me process the myriad of emotions that have enveloped me since January 17th. Perhaps this can be the best prescription for emotional recovery. I just know I need to do something. While in Vegas, I pulled out a photo of Owen as a toddler and decided this would be a good place to start. I wanted one of him looking down and made this sketch. And yes, his lashes really are that long.

I'm so glad you have such a beautiful way to process... I'm thinking of you and your family.
