commission: shared love and lives

I thoroughly enjoyed making this commissioned piece.  The theme of the work was her love for her daughter, her faith, their history as a military family, and her girl’s favorite things.  Her daughter’s favorite colors are pink and purple, and they both love the beach.  Her daughter was born in Texas.  I incorporated some of the little girl’s flower hair barrettes and beads, as well as art she had made for her mother with her handprint and footprint.
