About ten years ago, a sweet young girl came into my life as a tutorial student. But, really, the tutorial was just the universe's way of flinging a door wide open to a soul connection. This painting is for that girl—who is now both a wonderful young woman and a world-class high school graduate.
Congratulations, Chloe Rose!
