Laura is and Jessica were deployed together in Iraq. In 2017 Laura and I visited Jessica's grave site in Arlington. I created this piece from a photo I took of Laura honoring Jessica. This is a mixed media ink with pastel.

My Zen Story

A few years ago I took a class on Zentangle. I found that drawing repetitive patterns on paper was incredibly relaxing. I took my basic knowledge and expanded it to Zen based pieces. Just about all the pieces I do start from one of my original photographs. On the above piece, I used a stencil then Zentangled the flower.
