A Labor of Love

It's been nearly a year since I last posted but here is one of the highlights from the labor of love which has consumed most of my time, The Beautiful Lives Lost Portrait Project:

We did it! Artists from the Pacific Northwest came together and made 58 portraits to honor and remember the 58 people lost to gun violence at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last October 1st. Families were in Vegas for healing events, including our show and our tributes to their loved-ones were given to them to take home. Huge thank you to all the artists who donated their time and talents to make this special show happen and another shout-out to the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa for sponsoring and hosting our show. We feel good about this effort coming full-circle with the portraits going home with the victims families. Thank you to all of you who also gave money and time to help get these portraits to them.

All portraits may be viewed on our website
