It's that crazy time of year! I've been working like crazy -I would love to blog and show some really fun fall portraits, but I'm too busy doing everything else. :) I do have to share this - this project has been one of my favorites and I'm so excited to share it. A couple of months ago I got asked to do some artwork for the new Rust Medical Center in Rio Rancho. The artwork company that the hospital hired to fill the hospital with art (which is beautiful by the way) hired me to help with the NICU. I got to meet 8 different families who had babies who "graduated" from the NICU, and do portraits of their children. Then we added text describing their interests and printed them HUGE - 24"x36" - and hung them in the NICU. They also plan to redecorate the old Presbyterian NICU downtown with this artwork - I'm really excited about that too.
So I'm posting the 4 portraits that we have finished. I blurred out the names, because I'm just never comfortable publishing anything about children's names. But you get the idea - if I was a parent with a baby in the NICU, I think I would love to see these. It's been so inspiring to meet with this children and their parents and hear their amazing stories! I have 4 more portraits to go.
