From My Heart to Yours (beginning)

 This is the piece beginning of This is the piece in its final state.

"From My Heart to Yours".  At the event I added some leaves that I inked up and printed onto a yellow background.

As you can see to the right, I cleaned up the gold leaf and added some acrylic paint.  I wanted to keep the colors bright and cheery.  It is a sobering thing to see pictures of babies weighing 4lbs who've had major surgery and only live for a few months afterwards. I am grateful to have participated in such a worthwhile event.
