My co-worker and his wife have always been enthusiastic and supportive about my artwork and expressed their wish to buy a piece one day when they had extra money. I know how hard he works at 2 jobs so his wife can finish nursing school and for Christmas I wanted to gift them with art. Using an aspen leaf, which is a nod to my coworker's home state of Colorado, I drew the distinct feature of Mt. Rundle in Banff because I knew Banff is a meaningful place for both of them. I framed the illustrated leaf and gave it to them in hopes it would encourage and remind them they are loved whenever they see it.
