My Commercial Artist and Tender Hearted Daughter
About a month ago our friend Chris Pierce commissioned Kate to create an art piece to memorialize his family dog Stone. Stone is the oldest golden retriever I have ever met. Chris new that Stone's time left with their family was short. He hired Kate, telling her he would buy any picture she created of Stone for $15. Kate was excited but a little nervous about the responsibility. She hadn't even started on her project yet when the Pierce family, our good friends lost Stone to old age and cancer. Again the kids were very sad. They all have such good hearts and are willing to mourn with others. We spent a Family Home Evening all trying to draw pictures of Stone or write them cards. Kate created a pencil sketch and this acrylic.
Last week we visited the Pierce family and Kate present her work to them. She makes me so proud. I think she has a wonderful gift not only as an artist but to love others.
