Is Love the most beautiful thing on Earth? Honestly, I don’t know, but when you see a family laughing together walking down the street holding hands, does that prove it? Or when you see a husband trying his best to make in time for the dinner date his wife is waiting for? It must be the effort, right? Because I don’t think love would survive a day without effort, one thing that I’m 100% sure about.
And when it comes to family, oh how fast time goes by when you were just wishing for the kids to get older the next minute they are seniors in high school. So, it all comes down to time, the only non-living and heavenly presence that binds up everything, giving meaning to every soul.
The little things that we share with our loved ones are the most to be cherished in future, French-American artist Pascal Campion based in Burbank, California beautifully portrays this essence of a family with his own personal experiences with his wife Katrina, 9-year-old daughter, and his 6-year-old twin boys.
Here are his heartfelt illustrations.
