The holiday season is a time of love and reaching out to those we love both near and far away. When I was a full time sculptor, I completed many poignant portraits for clients and their families. In this sculpture, my client commissioned a portrait of him with his sister who had died in a car accident. The sculpture was a way to remember their happy childhood and keep her close. Seeing the joy that the sculpture gave him reminded me of the importance of loving and sharing with the people in our lives.
As you celebrate the holidays please reach out, not only to your own loved ones but also to those who may have no one. "Family" is a biological connection but it is also much more than that in the big worldwide family. Reach out and share the love of the holiday spirit.
