Challenge Day 3
Childbirth Journey- Here's the first work I consider truly my own-15 pastel drawings with words from my journal in calligraphy (24 x 36 framed). It came after a tumultuous year that brought the unexpected death of my mother in January and the birth of my first child in June. After I exhibited them at the Newburyport Art Association, I felt that their personal nature asked for a more intimate place of display and that was what led me to the book. I'm amazed now at how compelled I was to share these feelings.
