I was unaware of the Beads of Courage program. Anything that can help children face the medical procedures that are ahead of them, is a wonderful thing. I applaud those who created the program, and the facilities that are implementing it.
Our son was a musician and played his many guitars, and keyboards regularly. So to honor him, I have included a Guitar, along with a lot of Beads of Courage. The sound hole is represented by the Tangle Pattern Dekore created by Kari Schultz. The other three patterns have the same initials as our son. His name was David Lee Hunter, so I used Diamond Drops, Leaflet, and Huggins. (Created by Janice Sherlock, Helen Williams, and Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.)
It's is hard not to feel the emotions behind a drawing based on a close family tragedy. I like how it turned out. Much better than my first idea. It was actually a good idea, but my execution of that concept was wonky, and rather than spend time on it, I just went with another idea.
Other than the emotional component to this weeks Challenge, it was a fun one.
