The drawing for Cru was definitely out of my normal comfort zone. As a rule I only work from my own pictures. Cru was a special case. Cru was in neonatal and pediatric care for the first three months of his life. With wires and tubes, gauze and casts, and all sorts of apparatus, I wanted to create a clear view of tiny Cru at this early stage for his parents to cherish forever. Cru was born less than 2 lbs, but is now doing incredibly well and growing strong. The family still has medical bills accumulating and they travel long miles for appointments. If you'd like to help support this family you can purchase a 6 x 8 print for 30$, or donate directly to the family. Please contact Rachael for more information.
