Asking For Serenity
Mixed media

Statement: This mixed-media figure made from painted vines, paper clay, and a coffee-stained vintage napkin shows the pain of addiction. She is comforted by the Serenity Prayer. She has a long road ahead and prays urgently for recovery.

 

Bio: Our small Episcopal church, in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, has opened its doors to Narcotics Anonymous for many years. The Serenity Prayer, twelve steps, open hearts and coffee fuel recovery for many addicts. Last year my own family became a part of this grace in action. My family member is about to realize six months of sober living. These figures are my way of giving praise for that milestone and my own healing. My "skelly" dolls embody the alienation that addicts and their loved ones often feel.
