Miracles happen...


10 x 10 acrylic and mixed media painting on deep set canvas.

My apologies for dropping off the blog-o-sphere for awhile. The warmer months (though they've not been terribly warm so far) bring with them a lot of outdoor chores and activities that consume time I might otherwise spend blogging or painting, or doing any other number of essentially indoor activities.

I finished this painting last night while waiting for a call from my mom about Avery. She needs a miracle these days my friends. In spite of her absolutely fierce determination, which is evidenced daily by her expressions and gestures, she continues to have a tough fight ahead of her. I hope to know more tomorrow, but a heart transplant may be her next hurdle.

Please continue to keep Avery in your hearts, minds and prayers along with her parents and the medical team who are working so hard to get her home and back to a normal little girl's life.

Kerri,
My heart goes out to you as I read your posts and when I saw the picture you emailed us of Avery...what a beautiful person she is. It is quite appropriate that most of your art incorporates hearts...I believe that if you could you would give yours to Avery, but you should know that in all that you are and all that you do--you already have.

Your heart painting says it all....miracles happen. Sending lots of prayers for Avery and everyone involved in her wellbeing.

Kerri Jean it is so good to read your blog. I never stop praying for Avery and all of your family as they rally through this journey. I believe in Miracles and am hoping Avery receives one very soon. Please know that you are being thought of each and every day as well. Sending hugs,

Kerri, I too can only reiterate what everyone else is saying. Your work is gorgeous and Little Avery deserves a miracle and I hope she gets one soon. Love and prayers to you and her and all her family.
