Tomorrow is my baby sister's birthday and I didn't expect it to affect me as much as it seems to be doing. I tried working today, but had this constant feeling of gloom and I decided that my best work won't come from it so I had to find other work related things to do. It is amazing how your emotions can affect your artistic mood and outcome of your work. I've learned that when I don't "feel it" just to do other necessary things and eventually it will all pass.
The photo of the dove is a real meaningful photo for me. My sister passed away in November and at her funeral we had the "Dove Lady" there. She did an amazing service for her and I'm so grateful for that. She released a flock of doves into the sky, representing angels in the sky. She then gathered the family to pet this single dove she held and handed us each a dove feather. She then said that this dove represented my sister and she would be released in the sky to join the other doves. When she released the single dove it circled the sky above us, then joined the angel doves in the sky where they took her "home". I will never forget that and through all the sorrow of the day, the dove gave me a little bit of peace.
As for glass news, I will be updating some more glassy news soon.
Until next time.......
