Jenny's Jellyfish

Jenny's Jellyfish - This is a painting of Jenny & Mom walking on the beach finding Moon Jellyfish that are stranded. The theme is based on Jenny's favorite story, Jenny Jellyfish (I’m sure she mostly likes it because the Jellyfish has her name).  At the end of the story, the "helpful humans" must keep pouring water on the jellyfish to save them until the tide comes back in. It reminds me of the starfish story where the adult tells the child there are just too many that need help for you to make a difference. Then, the child helps just one and tells the adult, "Well, I made a difference to that one!" So in the painting, Jenny & I are trying to make a difference, one jellyfish at a time. The two of us just keep going no matter what the odds are against us. The two empty beach chairs are waiting there for Jenny’s sisters to return. Dad is in the background, fishing.

Poem: "I Walk With You" is for my poetry series Spirit of the Butterfly.
This poem and painting is dedicated to those who have made a difference in our lives. No matter how far apart we are, remember that you are always in our hearts.
