Fun art project I've been working on. Designing by hand, my Mom's side of the family - the Brown's - a new family crest/coat of arms.
There's a LOT of family symbolism and sentimentalities here that I know family members will recognize and hopefully appreciate.
One aspect that I wanted to focus on was the sun piece. The sun overall represents Las Vegas and how that's our family's warm "home base". The 9 rays represent the 9 kids Grandma and Grandpa raised (now uncles and aunts for us grandkids), and the inner circle, which we recognize as one of Grandpa's kaleidoscope lens, represents the grand and great grandkids, and how we're all different but still make the "view" unique and pretty. The colors are also similar a la Grandma's necklace.
I love my Brown family and am so glad to be raised in a crazy group that exemplifies love of nature, hard work, music, art, faith, with focus on the family, focus on the wonders of the world, and the great kindness and boisterous FUN we share!
