Carpe Diem

I made this board book for my Mom.  She lost two brothers (the oldest and youngest) within one year and has a third undergoing treatment for colon cancer.  I'm hoping this little book will help with the healing process.  What's cool about this piece is that it basically created itself. I wanted to do an old world-type of book filled with gorgeous paintings and type, but was led to create one that contains three basic statements about life.  Once it was complete, I knew exactly who it was meant for.  I love when that happens!!
