This was the painting I WANTED to do for my Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge for Sunlight. But being me, I 'lost' the photo before I could paint it. And as it usually happens, as soon as the Challenge was done... you guessed it, I found it. This is a big old tree in our neighborhood. I've love the shadows on grass as well as snow. I started this as a demo for my Providence Art Club class as an example of 'negative space'. Took it home and completely reworked it, so I'm happy now.
During my class Monday I started getting tons of messages, and phone calls - unusual, since everyone I know KNOWS I teach Monday afternoon. It wasn't till I spotted the message that flashed on the screen that said "I'm OK Mom, don't worry..." that I decided to look at the other messages, and realized something was very wrong in Boston.
Took a long time to be certain my kids and friends were safe, as cell phones were not working from Boston due to the bombing. Texting, however, still worked, and I literally spent over an hour texting everyone checking to be sure...
My daughter was supposed to be running the Marathon this year... for a couple of reasons she decided not to... but that was right around the time she usually crosses the finish line, and we've been IN that crowd, waiting, and were 'supposed' to be there this year.... angels watching over us, I guess.
Evil is resilient .... but goodness is even more so. The messages from friends and strangers across the country in support of Boston was... incredibly moving. From a day filled with heartbreak, I am coming away with hope, and strength, and confidence that goodness will prevail, that we are One.Pin It
