I started making this shadowbox in Prescott Valley while I was there helping out my mom after spinal fusion surgery. I collected wildflowers and weeds and rusty old metal from my walks with Cupid. I saved special goodies from workshops with Tim Holtz and Mike Putman and Art Unraveled. To me, the shadowbox represents home~~the desert, warmth, peace, familiarity. It reminds me of fun and relaxation and friends--old and new.
Today, I am grateful for my Cupid, who has blessed the last nearly-12 years of my life with her devotion, affection, and beauty.
I am also thankful for the sense of vision. I cannot imagine life without it.
