Today Julie Hernandez shares her flags with us.
" I am an artist and art teacher in
North Texas. My students and I are starting off the New
Year by making prayer flags. First, I wanted to send this one I just
finished. It is a prayer flag for Sandy Hook Elementary, which is still
deeply on my heart. The decorative skulls reference the Dia de los
Muertos tradition of remembering and celebrating the lives of those who have
passed. And the way they are cropped and positioned created a perfect
area of negative space for the names of the 26 victims to fit. This flag is a tribute to them, and a prayer for their
friends and family left behind. In fact, it is a prayer for all of us."
