Sunset Elegy

"This piece came about recently when an estranged family member passed away. I painted this in his memory as a way to process my grief. He having been homeless at the time and experiencing pernury, I thought (perhaps naively) that maybe I could give him a safe place in the afterlife.

I thought the open door of the glowing apartment and building bathed in fading sunlight an apt metaphor.Creating this scene out of dripping paint and fading light, helped me unravel my emotions and find some peace.

As often in my work, figures stare from the windows, I like to think, beckoning him to come and rest. As I have come to do of late, a small bit of my medical notes are decoupaged into the fence in the lower left corner."
