Life, Death & Personal Commitment

I have discovered how easily personal commitment can be derailed by life…and death…and that it’s as it should be. Last week my husband’s mom passed away and the painting below is dedicated to my hubby, Tim, and his mother, Velma. 

As for my own intention of a sketch a day, I found it to be surprisingly selfish to spend my time last week pursuing my own interests. But I firmly believe everything works out as it should, and Tim and I enjoyed a quiet, loving & healing week supporting each other.

About Wendy Fallon

By day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am an artist and creative writer. Having lived in Phoenix, AZ with my husband Tim for 23 years, I find the urban wilderness in which we lived to be endlessly fascinating. Our home was tucked up against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal slashing across the base of the mountain provides inspiration for paintings, drawings, and sitings of wild coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards and constant change.
