Artwork & candles fom five.

Earlier this month my art exhibit, five, opened at Mulberry Art Studios.  Sweet Pea Project hosted a community reception and it all unfolded perfectly... the artwork, the writings, the gently played guitar, the poetry reading, the community expressions wall, the glow of over 200 candles, each one bearing the name of a deeply loved child... it all came together to create something beautiful and honest and important and powerful and sacred. 

Experience a bit of it for yourself by taking a few minutes to view this video, featuring artwork and candles from the exhibit, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfK3u5C1egY

Krista Darrah of Loving Memories Photography (http://www.lovingmemoriespa.com/) captured many beautiful images that afternoon, and she has generously donated them all to us.  If you had a candle lit for your child, please feel free to visit the Lit With Love album at www.sweetpeaproject.shutterfly.com  and download the image of your candle.

I hope today is a gentle one for you.
