Life always seems to have its share of tragedies and joys. After the wonderful trip to England getting to know the new baby, I came home to one of my best girlfriends from high school passed. She and her husband were planning on visiting us in October from San Diego. I knew she was having brain surgery and was scared but I thought she would be fine. Shelly was a true creative soul with an abundant free spirit so I painted the surf with a butterfly to give to her husband and 5 daughters….heartbroken.
The seahorse painting is for a friend whose son has to have serious stomach surgery. Seahorses do not have a stomach evidently and my friend is now collecting seahorse artworks.
