A Special Remembrance

I have been searching for an image to make a project to honor the memory of my late husband.  Rick St. Dennis of course had the perfect image and the title "October Morning Glory" made it even more perfect, if possible.  I lost my husband the first week of October, 2004, and this time of year is a very hard month for me and my family. So I was inspired to create a love letter to him by a project in a magazine with a stamp of love sentiments as a journal page but I wrote my thoughts about love with a blue pen and covered it with blue water color wash.  I had colored her with Prisma colored pencils in blue for morning glories and his favorite color for me to wear was blue.  I attached her to the writing and then to a chipboard base with lots of brown for my eyes which he always thought pretty.  

 This is in memory of a loving, caring husband, father and son-in-law who will be missed forevermore.
