Draw Strength From Your Roots
This is my entry for illustration friday. It's a handpainted block print. I had been working on a series of drawings that had the theme of houses, roots and seeds to symbolize that we are all provided with everything we need. This week has been hard to deal with, of course, my heart goes out to those whose suffering we can't even begin to imagine. But my heart has been heavy for my parents. Who have been displaced by the storm. They live in Jefferson Parish. Their home was not flooded, but their lives will be changed forever. They were on vacation visiting family in Michigan when the storm hit. They are safe and well cared for and I am so thankful. Uncertainity and fear will eat us away if we let it, draw strength from your roots, from your family, your faith and those inner seeds of greatness that lie within.
Everyone does according to what their heart tells them. I have put up an auction for the Red Cross for an artist's journal that I made with this image. If you'd like to have an original piece of my artwork and support a good cause, click here.
