San Anselmo artist sends free flower art to those who are sick - Marin Independent Journal
In college, I was looking at an image of a simple ink painting from 500 years ago at the other side of the world –I was in Rhode Island — feeling a surge in my sternum about it. I never really stopped trying to find that and figure out what it is and make peace that it’s not something that can be explained, it’s just something you can participate in, as a maker, a facilitator and a viewer.
Q What drew you making flower art?
A I have been painting flowers in one way or another for decades. My mother was a competitive flower arranger, and a garden and floral designer, among other things, so I grew up in a house full of flowers. But, I didn’t think of them as a language, of sort, and then that started to develop more and more as I had my own health issues.
Q What inspired you to send these flower drawings?
A I have been doing that way before I ever considered myself an artist. I have always loved sending things in the mail and I have also been struck by how when things get difficult for people, it seems like nobody knows what to say. Part of the reason why flowers become such a tool for communicating in those circumstances is that they don’t mean anything, the exact same flowers can be sent to say “I love you,” “miss you” or “congrats” or “thank you,” or “I can’t believe you’re gone” or “get well soon.” I think part of the reason people have turned to them is it’s outside of words and they just do the one thing that people really want to communicate. What people really want to hear is “I’m thinking of you,” “I’m here,” an acknowledgement of relationship, whatever it is.
Q How did the project turn into what it is today?
A I just ask for people to send me an email with the full name and mailing address and almost without exception people send more than that. Like here’s the situation: “My mom is in a nursing home and I can’t get to her and she’s scared and she’s got a cough and I can’t figure out whether this is the virus, and I am desperate. Can you reach out to her for me?” “My daughter is a nurse in the ER in Brooklyn, I feel so much pride, and all these different feelings towards her. Can you send one to her?” The project is, ultimately, how I am trying to figure out what it means to live in a really beautiful place, largely that’s not overrun with the virus, and still be shut in and reading the news and hearing from friends in much more dire circumstances, and try to make sense of what is happening the only way I can. It is ultimately an act of reaching out on beh... Dec 10, 2020
Karen Hannis Meinhart Obituary - Mt. Holly Springs, PA | Cumberlink Sentinel - Legacy.com
They married in 1975, and together they traveled the world with the US Air Force, living in Arkansas, the Azores, Delaware, Texas, Germany, Rhode Island, and Virginia. They settled in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where they built a warm and welcoming home in which to grow old together and filled it with art from their family's adventures together. Karen worked as an administrator and human resources professional with the US Government and retired from federal service in 2016. She is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband of 45 years, Richard Meinhart of Carlisle; her daughter, Lauren Meinhart of Oslo, Norway; her son, David Meinhart, of Philadelphia; and five siblings: Jeanine Johnson of Emmaus, Sheila Mangano of Clifton, Virginia, Steven Hannis of Easton, Brian Hannis of Naples, Florida, and Kelly Cuetara of Downingtown. She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Hannis, of Santa Rosa, California. She will be remembered as a selfless and caring mother, wife, and friend, as well as an unmatched home cook and Christmas cookie virtuoso, who filled the house with her wonderful singing. She was an aficionado of Broadway musicals and art museums; an avid reader of news and current events; and a dog lover, among the many passions that she passed to her loved ones. Karen will be laid to rest in Mt. Holly Springs Cemetery following a service that will remain private due to COVID-19 restrictions. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to World Central Kitchen (wck.org), a non-profit organization she admired that believes in the power of food to unite people, just like she did. Arr...

Young RI organ donor's image will be part of Rose Parade float
Evan's gift to others, according to Kelly Green, manager of after-care services at the Waltham, Massachusetts-based organization. He is the first Rhode Island donor to be selected."A young boy who can give life to so many at such a young age," Green said.Two volunteer artists in California made Evan's image based on a photograph of him playing in the leaves. It was then flown to Rhode Island for Rogers and Brayden to complete. It will be returned to California, where it will be affixed to the 2019 Donate Life float, whose theme is Rhythm of the Heart. Living donors who have given organs will be seated on the float or walk alongside it during the parade.New England Donor Services will also pay to fly Rogers and Brayden to Pasadena, where they will help finish the float by adorning it with live flowers, Green said."The reason we do this is that it's another opportunity to spread the word about donations," Green said, adding, "I feel like donating gives a glimmer of hope in a very dark hour."Evan died at UMass Memorial Medical Center, in Worcester, of injuries he suffered in a crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike on Aug. 20, 2009. His father, Joseph E. Tellier, who was at the wheel and partially ejected, was also injured in the crash.Evan's heart went to an 8-year-old girl; one cornea went to a 16-year-old in California and the other to a 62-year-old Massachusetts man. His kidneys benefited two men, ages 23 and 47."It was a really important decision we made when he passed," she added. "Evan was a very caring and loving child. He'd be pleased."Rogersr described Evan as an "odd duck" with a taste for meatloaf as well as sushi."He was just, happy, fun-loving," she said, as Brayden listened. "He was a protective older brother. He never went anywhere without his little brother."Green encouraged people interested in becoming an organ or tissue donor to visit www.DonateLife.net.— email@example.com(401) 277-7417On Twitter: @kmulvane
