Hold On!

This drawing was my response to the attacks on September 11, 2001.

God's Hand: Drawing From 9/11/01

God's hand scoops down to gather up their souls before they suffer the fall inside the towers. 

Colored pencil 
8" x 8"

I had to draw this more for myself than anyone. I just could not stomach the thought of all those people trapped in falling skyscrapers. 

I drew it how I hoped it happened - that God (or whatever higher power one might believe in) scooped them all up and they didn't suffer. Desperately seeking comfort, this image brought some for me. 

I hope today brings you closer to the ones you love - both near and far. I care for each and everyone of you!! xoxo

Hi Vickie,

First of all thank you for visiting my blog and leave me a comment :-)
Always very nice to receive some reactions on a blog post!

And Yes I think, no I believe, that it is a piece of the "self acceptance process" to look to and accept the colors of your heart!

Greetings from the Netherlands,
