When my daughter was 25 years old she drowned.God and art has helped me to cope with hard times throughout my life

Til we meet again…
When my daughter was 25 years old she drowned. I felt numb and angry and didn’t know what to do with myself. A year later her twin sister was killed in a tragic car accident. This devistated me and my family beyond words can describe. I never thought I would bury any of my children.
As I was starting to heal my youngest son was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor and I spiraled back into confusion, grief and pain.
God and art has helped me to cope with hard times throughout my life; I’ve needed it as an outlet of expression and to let out negative feelings and grief from these experiences.
I press forward using art daily to transform the negative into something beautiful and remind myself we are all capable of getting through ANY obstacle. To remind us to be thankful for our families and friends and to see every day as a blessing and a gift. This is why I wanted to share my artwork with you today.

I’m sorry you had to go through that. I can not even begin to imagine how it was. Yet your art is beautiful as there is still beauty inside you to draw it. Thank you for sharing.
