Companion tells the story of a warm Summer’s day, when the world was eerily quiet and life was quickly changing. With a baby on the way and a global shut down taking place, the world held even closer to the ones that bring comfort and a resting place in the midst of raging fire and seasons of drought. This piece represents a time when life did not feel beautiful, and many needed a reminder of warmth and familiar faces. The curls of warm yellows and oranges makes one easily forget about the shadows underneath. The blowing wisps of hair are a reminder that this moment will pass. Perhaps, if we sit long enough, we too will see that there is beauty to be found in the empty fields. Soon we will hug again, but for now, we have these sacred moments to sit still with the ones who comfort us best.
