My parent’s house in Oregon has an alley on one side of the house (a great big cement wall) which is an eye sore — especially when there are no plants that hang down on it. So this summer, my dad asked if my niece, Alagna, who is a very talented artist (at the ripe age of 12) could draw a mural on the wall. Since YOLO and I thought it would be a fun project to do with all the cousins, I decided to help with it. It has been SO fun and a lot of work. And god bless my parents who had faith in us to create something fun and pretty!
Although we had a lot of workers (the little kids), it was mainly me and Alagna who drew and took control over it. Although far from perfect, it makes me happy and I love how it brought the family together. We were all so excited and talked nonstop about it and what we wanted to do — creating something together that we will always have — love it.
