The sky was yellow and the sun was blue....

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to experience an entire weekend of Grateful Dead cover bands just a short drive from home.  While I was home during a break from the shows, I noticed the sheet on my son's bed had a huge unrepairable rip in it.  I often look for "signs" when I get an idea in my head and want evidence that I should run with it.  The gray torn sheet turned out to be the perfect excuse to make a portrait of Jerry.  

The portrait is made from 2 old bed sheets, cotton canvas, colored pencil, fabric dye, stitches and love.

Sometimes a piece of art can help us stay grounded the same way a meditation can. Everything delightful is all about connecting our bodies and breath back....
