Oil and pencil on canvas

36 x 48 inches



This painting was created several years after my father's suicide and includes, in pencil, the note he left behind. It depicts my feelings that now he was a disembodied, amorphous spirit in this universe and the sadness and feeling of loss. However, the note he left was one of love, of seeking forgiveness and redemption. In it my father was able to express his love, concern and support for his family and to express the feelings that were was were difficult for him to express in life.
