Jade is my daughter, my one, my only child. She is the miracle God gave me. She will be five in a few weeks.
In September her Mother left to start a new life. We were both devastated and cried together for what seemed like forever. A week later she sat down with her aunt, Capt Julie http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/captain-julie.html who paints and produced this painting with the Capt. only telling her to look and draw and then paint what was in front of her.
Of course I was impressed.
Last week I was blessed enough to see an image by Sharon Burger, "The Old Rugged Cross" http://fineartamerica.com/featured/the-old-rugged-cross-sharon-burger.html
I loved it and told her that Jade would love it, as the story of Jesus was her favorite, specifically the crucifixion and resurrection. Within minutes Sharon sent me the file and asked me to print it for Jade.
When I told Jade about it she insisted I send Sharon the file for this image. I think there is something here, something we so often miss, the idea of sharing with each other, not our art but our love, the love for another human being, one that we may not even know.
I feel very blessed to have Jade as my daughter, Capt Julie as a sister in law and Sharon as a new friend.
God Bless each and all of us...
Skip and Jade
