Hi Everyone, the last few days have been rough. Had to take my mom to the hospital for some tests. Don’t worry…she’s fine, but at that age (76) they tend to worry about everything…afraid to be alone, afraid of dieing, afraid to die alone…It’s endless and no matter how you try to appease them, they worry, which then causes them to become ill. My mom had an anxiety attack which of course caused her to be rushed to the hospital Once there, she started to recover. She doesn’t want to accept that you can’t worry about things that are out of your control, like aging and the aches that come along with it.
I once got this morbid push to sketch a funeral that was going on at my church. Some think its morbid I don’t. Funerals allow me to appreciate what I have, and who I have, as well as appreciate life. This funeral was particularly sad but i needed to sketch it. So I did. Life is what it is. Just enjoy every moment, the good parts and the bad and simply live!!!
This is the piece below. It didn’t come out the way I wanted it to as I restricted myself by using India ink which is unforgiving and permanent. But the message is obvious. DEATH HAPPENS!!! LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST. LOVE TO THE FULLEST.
To all those lost in Las Vegas, I send condolences and peace on all the families.
