his view of the city...


(embroidered linen with encaustic)

we went to the city...


we were all excited, as was he....



...but he was also overwhelmed. The unexpected noises, the crowds, the smaller spaces....he couldn't adjust and was ready to go home. Then we found the perfect little playground shaped like a ship. With no other children there, he was able to take a mental breath and return to the noises hand in hand.....
