One year, Rachel

One year
watercolor  & pen

about the piece.
I wasn't sure what to do for Lyra's one year anniversary. This seemed the most natural way to express how much we miss her, though nothing can really do justice to how deep of feelings we have and how much we still mourn her absence in our lives.

about the artist.
Rachel lives in Kansas with her husband of four years and a gray cat. They lost their first child, Lyra, at 30 weeks due to placental abruption on December 18, 2009. Rachel maintains a blog called Curls O Fred.


  1. It's beautiful, Rachel. Love to you and Lyra.

  2. I love it Rachel. What a beautiful tribute to Lyra.

  3. This is so beautiful. I always love your work, Rachel.
    Missing your sweetheart Lyra today.

  4. Your colors are amazing, and the message is beautiful. I love that you signed from Dad, Mum and Simon. Thinking of Lyra today.

  5. Rachel this is so beautiful! The colors, the love, the longing.... a touching tribute to your sweet Lyra for her first anniversary.
