Illustration Friday Topic: Animal

This week has been a tough one.

My Grandmother at the age of 99.5 passed away peacefully in her sleep.  Although our family knew this was coming as over the last few weeks her body has been slowing. Spread out as we are, each are dealing with it in our own ways. My mother and sister were able to be there with her, for which I am grateful.  In that I am not able to be physically with my family, I haven been mourning her loss and reflecting on her amazing life here at home. 

She made the most beautiful "wycinanki" Polish cut paper. So this morning as I woke, I decided to meditate on her by creating one of my own in tribute.

This is all hand cut, I am including one shot below that give you an idea of scale and process. I hope she is smiling.

  1. I'm sure your grandmother will be more than happy seeing what you are doing. Even more is something that you both share and love which is your guys family and arts, Alicia.
