Using ten large scale pieces, I hope to share my vision of what heroism looked like during an incredibly dark time in history.

Under way!

Posted by Toni Storlazzi-DiMartino (Creator)

I received all of my art materials earlier this week, and got myself some new glasses (thanks goodness for our HSA), and made a playlist, and I am working!

The first painting I am tackling is about a mother and daughter staying connected while physically separated through the actions of a kind Mother Superior. So, right now I am creating the memories, or parenting moments that happen, that I will imply are being fostered through this "spoon of sugar." 

So far I've got two done: breastfeeding and brushing the daughter's hair. I actually got a little emotionally overwhelmed today drawing the hair brushing, thinking about my own daughter and how it saddens me so much to think of her being taken from me.

I'll attach what I've got so far. Hope you feel good about having supported me! Thanks again!
