Angels in Action - A Christmas Tale!

Last February,  Jennifer Grant-McCarty (Operations & Fundraising Manager of Cayman HospiceCare) contacted me to ask if I would consider creating the artwork for the hospice's annual fundraising  brochure.  Being familiar with the generous and loving work of this wonderful organization, I was happy to oblige and to donate my art for this meaningful cause. 

The creation of the painting used for this year's Christmas brochure evolved over a period of twelve months.  

I had quite a bit of help…. People enthusiastically offered their thoughts and time when I explained the purpose of the painting.  Especially touching was the adorable group of small children who posed for my motif and help create the angels that we used to decorate our "Christmas palm tree".

You can simply enjoy the slideshow below!

"Angels in Action" is dedicated to my father, Dr Bjorn Ibsen (1915-2007), the founder of intensive care medicine.   His dedication to hospice care and patients' rights are what motivated me in creating this painting.

Have fun… 

We did!

Happy Hollidays and God Bless
