The mermaid is my Sophie and that's her pearl of wisdom. I didn't even know that Adrienne had made it with Sophie in mind until later. Can you even imagine how that makes me feel? I can't even write about it, it's that powerful.
The shrine is crafted from re-purposed materials, and it's simply beautiful. Here's the back of the cigar box painted in the most intense colors:
These photos don't do nearly enough to demonstrate the beauty but they give you a bit, right?
And to think that I "met" Adrienne through blogging and that she has never "met" me in any other way other than reading my blog and that she has "gotten" Sophie, exactly the way I see her. I guess that's not only the beauty of blogging but the beauty of art.
Thank you, Adrienne for this inspiring and moving art.
And thank you, Rebecca, for hosting such a generous event.
