if * [grow ] dear miss allison

i am allison

if - grow
8x24 canvas
mixed media
acrylics, silverleaf and found paper
[for miss allison who is learning to grow
in the midst of some hard circumstances]
if you want to see more growth....look here

I just finished this piece for
miss allison. her
sister is caroline who
i have written about many times. allison
just turned 7 and is a very brave and
giving girl.

her mom
has been in minnesota with
caroline for over 7 months. allison and her
baby sister have had to be brave girls without
their mom. many family and friends stepping up
to make sure the other girls are taken care of,
but allison sure does miss her mom.

i am hoping this little piece will make her smile.
and that the
blues and greens will match her
newly painted room.

now go hug someone you love!
