This One is Near and Dear To Me




I just finished this little sculpture. I actually made it several months ago, but just last week, I finally finished glazing it. This little piece is very personal to me; it represents myself and my mother, as she lay so very sick with cancer just before her death. I'm not even sure I can sell this piece; I don't believe I can part with it yet, but I wanted to share it with you. I'm wishing you love and happiness this Thanksgiving, and I hope that you are able to spend the holiday with loved ones. Thinking of you~ Kelly

  11. What a magnificent piece of art from the heart, Kelly! I know your Mom would be very proud of it, ... and your acknowledgment of your last moments together. I'm sure she is also proud of you for learning to fly, ;). What a very special piece. Wishing you and your family a very special holiday together, sweetie. Big Hugs ~~ J

  13. Very Lovely Kelly,
    and like you told me not too long ago, it is important to keep some of the very special pieces that you make for yourself. I have kept a little book I made because of your words.
