Meaning of the art: I have this bowl of stones on my kitchen table with affirmative words painted on them and every morning I pull a stone from the bowl. This morning I pulled a little stone that had the word Love on it. I took that word with me when I went for my morning walk/run with the color red on my min. As I went around on the path I couldn't help but think of my family, the ones I live with and the ones I don't and how each of their lives are turning out and I felt sick and sad for them. I think that this is in most families there are those that seem to stray and need their hearts mended.. so I created this collage piece to honor all the hearts that need mending. I felt great love above the sad and sickness.
