Bright's Bat Mitzvah is tomorrow. Last week she and I painted silk for a tallit, a prayer shawl, for her. Bright and I worked on the design together. She wanted dahlias in a pattern, with some orchids and a rose; I worked out 3 or 4 design ideas and she chose one. I drew the design and outlined it with resist. We worked all one day painting it.
Bright's dedication and care with this project was amazing! With people like her growing up in there world, there is hope!
I feel honored to be a part of this special time for Bright and for her family.
