Sun Heart



Sun Heart is hand embroidery on watercolored muslin using various shades of red.

Today is the twenty seventh anniversary of the death of my mother. She was a beautiful, artistic, loving soul who taught me how to be a mother, how to love, and how to survive adversity and tragedy. Her dream was to be an artist and instead I was lucky enough to have her as a mother. I hope in some way I am paying tribute to her through my life both as a mother and an artist.

What a beautiful tribute to your mom -- you must miss her so much at this time of year. Your wonderful expressions of art speak volumes about the lessons you learned from her.
