The day after little Agnes died, I learned that 4 of my art pieces had been accepted in a local Cartoon and Humorous Art show. One featured her as a character in a painting. It was impossible to be very happy at that point, but I was grateful to have the work to do to ready the pictures for the show. I had the pictures, which I'd painted using Photoshop, printed on silk, and then I mounted them on white needle felted wool, so that the effect would be soft. Yesterday, I delivered them to the gallery, but took this picture first...you can see her little face, and the carved rock which the veterinary hospital sent to me, as well as the Keep Calm Carry On water bottle my son sent. Once the show opens I'll post a photo of the pictures...at least I think I will...I am a big worrier about how they will look in public. Anyway, all this has been therapeutic and a month has gone by, which is astonishing.
