Artwork description:

"Wishbone" - mixed media on watercolor paper, 15" x 22". Ready to frame.

I have a wishbone. Made of metal and donor tissue, a new structure working hard to assimilate - to become a part of me. It hurts. Like anything foreign. Anything as hard as steel.

On my desk sits a form from the surgical center - "how to thank the donor family." I read it every day, struggling with words. How can you thank someone for the gift of a part of their lost beloved? A part of them lives on in me - a wish for never-ending health and life. A wish for connection. A wish for love that never leaves us. A wish for a spine that will not crumble.

When words won't serve, there is art.
​This piece is sold unframed. It will be shipped flat, carefully packaged in mostly repurposed shipping materials.
