Wow that is beautiful!! That is my favorite color of green! But I really love the message. I have been trying to look inside myself and really understand who I am. My biggest thing I am having a problem with is loving myself. I dont know how. I really would be honored to win this print. It would be a reminder of the blessings that others give of theirself not knowing the lives they touch, and a daily reminder to love myself!
This is a such lovely print that anyone would be proud to display but I especially like the message. So why would someone living in a shelter enter a contest for an art print? As you might guess it is not for me; Samantha is now 9 years old, I met her when she and her mother, her stepdad and sibling were living at the shelter. They all moved out a while back and things did not go well at all. Currently all the children are in foster care, Kathryn (their mother) is back at the shelter and has been fighting to get them back. During all this upheaval Samantha tried to commit suicide and is currently in therapy. Sam is a beautiful, bright little girl; I cannot even imagine the anguish in this little girls heart to try something so desperate and nearly succeed.
The children will be returned to Kathryn by the end of the month, providing that she has no further contact with their father and completes her parenting classes, which she has done.
I would like to win that print for Samantha's new room; it will take 30 to 60 days for them to get housing once the children are back and that would give me time to get it framed for her.
Good luck everyone! It is a lovely work of art and I know whoever is lucky enough to win will treasure it.
