Sandy Hook Angels and Paint Party Friday

Remembering Charlotte, Daniel, Rachel, Olivia, Josephine, Dylan, Madelein, Catherine, Chase, Jesse, Ana, James, Grace, Anne Marie, Emilie, Jack, Noah, Caroline, Jessica, Avielle, Lauren, Mary, Victoria, Benjamin and Allison today and every day …

While here on earth they were stars in the eyes of their parents, siblings, spouses, significant others, all other family members and friends and now and forever, they will live in our hearts and shine from the heavens.

I’ve tried to represent these 26 precious beings with an assemblage of wood and placed them watchfully on a stairway to Heaven. Six female grownups and twenty little children (twelve girls and eight boys) all taken from this earth far too soon.   

Hand and machine crafted shapes along with vintage wood handed down from generation to generation, along with old VT barn wood and wooden Scrabble tiles. 

And the paint … angel white with a touch of pink or blue.  A Sandy Hook Elementary School green heart shaped memorial ribbon adorn each angel.  The yellow stars are painted with leftover paint from a children’s summer piƱata I had once made.

 ... and it's Friday already again!
