An Homage to Clara

I posted on Sunday that David had finished his drawing of Clara. It is just so lovely, that I must share it.

David started a drawing of a newborn around the middle of March, right before Spring Break. He tinkered at it for a week or so, and then started a second job. He had precious little time for drawing, and so it went on the back burner.

A month or so after Clara died, he came across the drawing and we were astounded by how accurately she was portrayed.┬áHe finished the color work on it this week, and added Clara’s bunny and the butterflies that the grief counselors at the hospital included in her memory box.

It is gorgeous, as his artwork always is… but this one is so special, such a perfect representation, both of how she looked at birth, and how she might look today, if she had lived.
