๐Ÿ”ฅMy latest piece, "Phoenix," is available from @everydayorig today. I began the piece several weeks back at the Fantastic Workshop as part of my demo, initially inspired by the changing leaves. However, as I went to complete it yesterday, I had the southern California fires on my mind, as my best friend from high school just lost her new home in Sylmar. Additionally, my grandmother's home is just blocks away from the fire in Ventura. The piece took a turn, and now she's a Phoenix, changed forever by the flames and rising from the ashes and embers. My dear friend who lost her home has a gofundme, which I've linked in my post today on everydayoriginal.com. I'm hoping to help make up for all the art she's lost (including 2 originals of mine) when she and her husband are ready. I can't begin to imagine that kind of devastation. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Awesome

Beautiful. And touching story behind it too. Sorry to hear about your friend's home. What's happening there is truly heartbreaking. ๐Ÿ’”

Cโ€™est magnifique

My home town burned down in a wildfire not too long ago.

@kelly_mckernan


@obakemono23 I'm so sorry ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

@obakemono23


@kelly_mckernan thank you for that. Itโ€™s alright though. It was strange that those things that I thought would always be there if I wanted to go back were suddenly gone but no one (or pets) were lost so itโ€™s alright. Friend that had to replace everything tried to make it an adventure as opposed to a chore, that seemed to help.

Wow

@fouladesigns


Gorgeous ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

@sensit4jesus


We drove through the devastation on our way to LAX...heartbroken. Many of our dear ones affected. So I just bought your Phoenix๐Ÿ’–. Iโ€™ve always wanted one of your pieces, and she seemed appropriate and timely. Thank you & God bless you...prayers for your friend and Grandmother.

@serendipitytheartist


Gorgeous work!! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฟ

@siliences_


Is this painted on wood? And Iโ€™m so sorry for you friend I hope she is able to get back on her feet soon. I hope your grandmother stays safe as well :/ on a brighter side this is a really well thought out piece. Iโ€™m also curious but how did you get the white like veins did you use salt?
