"Evie in Blue" was painted in honor of writer, artist, founder, and friend, Evie Fishkin after she finished fighting her battle with cancer. Evie had a lot of hardships throughout her life but you would never have been able to tell. Even in her final days, she was always smiling and encouraging others. Her trust in God and both physical and mental strength dictated her life while inspiring everyone who crossed her path. In the relatively short time that our paths crossed, I am so thankful that I got to know her as I would not be where I am today without her.
