Two Artists Made Us Cry





ASHA & KAI


Our two greyhounds


Passed on January 20, 2020 & March 5, 2021


Words cannot describe the depth of our love for them


We wanted to do something very special, magical

In their honor

We felt drawn to Mae's art

And asked if she could create a vase and incorporate our greyhounds ashes in the clay

She said yes



We chose the style we wanted

Similar to one of her vases

And this is what we discovered after we chose it...



The style was based from a vase found in a tomb in Las Palmas Mexico - not far from Puerto Vallarta



The balls with cotton hanging from the vase were designed by Mae as winches, because winches were also found in Mexican tombs



There're no coincidences - it was a perfect tribute





Asha and Kai's ashes wrapped in a Japanese bag made by my mother and bound with a beautiful rope


Mae was gentle and kind... she sent me videos of the process of unwrapping the ashes and mixing them into the clay











Artists vase made with our greyhounds ashes






STUNNING . MAGICAL TRIBUTE

The meaning of this design with our greyhounds' ashes is LIFE


The energy of this vase


brings clarity

connects us to our angels Asha & Kai

brings ancestors past and future



Dear Mae, muchísimas gracias

we are forever grateful

It's impossible to visit or live in Puerto Vallarta

Without knowing one of the most famous jewelry designers, Cassandra Shaw

Her gorgeous store in Emiliano Zapata

Her love of helping animals in PV



She's also a painter



In June 2021 we attended a charity auction for R.I.S.E. - children's shelter

One of the auction items was a Cassandra Shaw Pet Portrait

Which is interesting because I'd been thinking about a pet portrait by Cassandra

Her paintings are whimsical, fun

And I won her Auction Item - Pet Portrait!



Cassandra based her painting from a photo I had of Asha and Kai

That was taken by a professional pet photographer in Chicago, David Sutton

This is the painting

Right next to my desk

Seen each time I walk up the stairs to our bedroom






This painting of my greyhounds is EVERYTHING


It makes me...


Smile

Laugh

Feel Love

Feel Comfort


EVERY DAY



It's Asha and Kai reminding me to have fun



Dear Cassandra, your light in creating this painting of my babies

Makes every day a more magical place





I'm forever grateful to have had Asha and Kai in my life

And to these artists for honoring their lives



Check out their art, their talent is brilliant
