Work in progress…

This is a very precious piece, based on a drawing made for me when I was a little girl, by a cousin who meant the world to me.

He died in a tragic accident when I was 12 and his death left a void and much grief…but his life also placed in me a ‘knowing’ about what unconditional love was – something that unbeknown to me then, I would draw on in dark times.

The words he wrote were that I should always remember that he loves me. Thirty two years on, I still hug the memory of his love for that little girl. Nothing is lost or forgotten.

    Hi Concetta
    Just wanted to say how absolutely beautiful – both your work in progress and the story. Lovely idea to interpret it into a lasting piece of mosaic.
    Thanks for showing us,
    Tracey

      Thanks for your words Tracey – mosaic is such a solid legacy for art especially something as close to the heart as this. x
