My first piece of art for 2017!

I started working on this little one a few days before Christmas but did not get to finish her until the first of January. I spent a quiet New Year's Eve working on her while my husband worked on his music. I knew what her "soul whisper" would be before I began..."though the heart was heavy, she did not carry it alone". I just didn't know what she would look like, how my hands would bring that "knowing" to life. 

I found it fitting to work on her as I thought about the past year. There was major loss mingled with the realization of some dreams. Through it all I was surrounded by an amazing circle of support...they helped me carry the story, the bits of my heart, when it all seemed to heavy.
