A Tribute to Ava

A Tribute to Ava

Ava Ballerina was lovingly drawn by her siblings in memory of their sweet sister. I was captivated by the details they drew on her special socks, her exuberant smile and her expressive eyes. When children draw, every detail is meaningful – but for this project, even more so. Ava Ballerina exhibits every little snippet of detail so thoughtfully included in the drawing by her three siblings.  I was so touched to receive an e-mail from Ava’s mom describing her children’s pride and joy when they opened the package and saw their drawing brought to life.  I never met Ava in person, but I feel like she somehow guided me through the creation of her artling, leading me to the appropriate fabrics, ribbon, yarn for the perfect hair…Dance sweetly, little Ava…

My heart is touched. I paint, and teach sandcastle building to children and families in the summer, on Lewes Beach in Delaware. I think this tribute to Ava (through her siblings’ drawing)is a tremendous gift of love by the artist.
