"When we are brave enough to open not only our eyes, but our hearts…we find the gifts of life just within our reach." -Denise Braun
A few months ago, Cathy and I decided to have a piece of art created with Elli in mind. I was struck with the idea after I met Denise of Heartwork City. She was an instructor for a Crisis Intervention class I took and she talked about the importance of balance in life. She showed us some artwork she had created and I thought that it would be awesome if she made something similar to it for Elli's room.
Cathy and I sent Denise a collection of photos and letters written while Cathy was pregnant with Elli. We talked about how we met and the meaning of Elli's name. Denise took all of that and a few weeks later returned with this:
What I love about it are the hidden layers. They build on each other. It's a reminder to me of all the things that seemed little in life but at the end of the day turned out to be the most defining (...or revealing depending on how you look at it ;-).
Denise has a presence on the web, Facebook, Cafepress (great for gifts), and runs her own studio in Atascadero. She offers Paint & Pinot parties on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. She is highly recommended!
