Artist's Description

pencil on paper (original SOLD)
image size: 22 × 22″

Please NOTE: I use the image of a child often in my drawings to denote innocence, purity and vulnerability – universal qualities that I hope/believe (in my own mind/heart) are innate qualities we all carry with us no matter our age.

There is so much I wanted to say with this drawing that, of course, words failed me – so I had to draw it. The sky changed many times over the course of a few weeks of its arrival – many snow storms were noted. Incredibly strange coincidences took place – all life-altering – most redemptive – some I’ll never understand while on this plane.

With great love for the memory of Isabella.

And a wish that self-love and innocence be one’s heartiest battle tools…

Here I am with it when it took ‘Best of the Best’ in a retrospective exhibition:

ALSO, I was completely moved the first time I saw a photo of Frances Cobain by Herb Ritts in Vanity Fair. I used her for reference for a whole slew of my child drawings. Many years later, I was struck by a photo of my own niece who arrived in my life and altered it in ways unimaginable. All my friends thought my drawings were ultimately about her. I really don’t know.

My niece ~
