This is a project I have been really excited about. I'm really happy to finally get to share it with you all. I have been so grateful and happy with the success my little illustration business has had. I'm super busy and it's really great. But, I have been really searching for a way to give back and show my love for those around me within my crazy schedule. Visiting hospitals and soup kitchens would be wonderful, but it's really difficult to do with a toddler and everything else. SO, I had a little bit of inspiration and decided I could still find a way to serve others and show my love.
The Angel Portrait Project. I have always had a extra soft spot for those families who have experienced the loss of a child. This project is my way to give comfort, support and love to those who mourn. My hope is that these portraits will be cherished for years to come by these families and let them know they are thought of and loved. I have donated paintings in the past of children who have passed to be used in their funerals and it meant so much to them that it made me want to help out even more. I have heard from friends that have lost a child that their biggest fear is that their child will be forgotten. These portraits will help each of these little angels be remembered forever in a unique and special way.
I will be giving custom portrait paintings for free to families who have lost a child in the past 3 years between the ages of 1-10. I will be starting with 30 portraits and see what happens. Each portrait will be in an illustrative style and include a special item, place, or activity that was precious to that child or their families.
But I need your help guys. I need to spread the word to find these families who could use a little extra love. I'm hoping you can share this however you can so it can reach the right people. Share this image with someone you think might appreciate this and have them email me with "The Angel Portrait Project in the subject line: email@example.com
See some examples of how the portraits would look below.
All my love,
