Heart lock...



Heart lock - 10 x 14 acrylic & mixed media collage on deep set canvas

...and speaking of hearts...my niece Avery's new heart continues to beat perfectly and there are no signs of rejection. She's been out of the ICU and on the regular cardiac floor for several weeks now, and is up and about every day, with her energy and humor and spicy personality intact, so it is just a matter of time (a short time we hope) before she is able to go home! Nutrition, eating solid foods and balancing her meds are all that keeps her there at this point.

So once again, my own heart is full of gratitude to all of you who have kept her in your hearts and minds for most of the last full year. My heart bursts with thanks for the basic goodness and generosity of humanity.

Kerri Jean I am so thrilled that Avery is progressing and I just love how you described her "spicy" personality. You have really been busy creating and these latest hearts are wonderful. Thank goodness you dropped your little pink lightbulb as it is a very bright idea for a heart. Keep painting and sharing. Thank you.
