Growing Together


This drawing was auctioned at Community Living Centers' Celebrity Chefs Dinner hosted by The Detroit Athletic Club.

After visiting the residents of Community Living Centers, I was inspired by their willingness to work together. They were all assigned chores, which helped the entire group live happily. The residents' efforts remind me of a garden, which takes plenty of labor to maintain, but can produce beautiful flowers that bring joy to anyone who sees them.
