Art as therapy

 The below drawing was inspired by this painting by 
 Early Renaissance Italian painter, Sassetta.

A little pug floats skyward as two people embrace.

This drawing honors the comfort we give and receive
from one another.

Something waits beneath it

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape...the loneliness of it...Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show"
                                                       American painter Andrew Wyeth 

and, beneath it all, we have had to say goodbye to our beloved Mimi,

she passed away a week ago today at 14 years old.

Rest in peace lovely girl. XO
