In Loving Memory of Maddie


20x24 Oil on Canvas

Beverly Gurganus

I was honored to be commissioned to paint this portrait of a sweet little girl. She loved Elmo and all that girly stuff such as lip gloss and going to the spa with mommy to have her nails done. Her life was cut short by an avoidable accident that isn't talked about much when we baby safe our homes. We all know about electrical plugs, gates, toilet latches, but have you been told to strap your furniture?

I am a mother of three, and I have to admit that my furniture wasn't strapped. I never even thought of that as a hazard, but children die from falling furniture. Please visit Maddie's website and pass the word along to strap your furniture.
