How does one begin a sentence that precedes the sharing of information that has forever altered the fabric of her life? It’s no easy task, that is for quite certain. But here I sit, on the porch of my Asheville home, feeling fall creep in with the its brisk wind against my neck and the welcome change of colors, grasping for the words to describe the loss I feel in the depths of my heart for the passing of my Mother.
After a far too short but fierce battle with a rare form of incurable skin cancer, my one of a kind, small statured but strong-willed, beautiful blue-eyed Matriarch recently lost her fight. The grief and loss my family feels is beyond words; we are immensely thankful to all who have provided their love and support during this difficult time.
With all of this said, if you are waiting on a reply from me in regards to a portrait related project, I can only ask for your grace as I learn how to navigate this new chapter in my life. I have had to put a couple of very important works on hold for the time being, but be assured they will resume in due time. Thank you for your patience, kindness and flexibility.
