Place of Departure

(Disturbing the Spirits, part 2)

I was working on my series, "Disturbing The Spirits" when my father suddenly died*. Place of Departure is the work I have done since…..

I feel that my life has fundamentally changed; but sometimes all seems the same. Where did my father go? What does a life mean after it leaves it's body? Does the life-force rise and connect the terrestrial with the celestial or does it evaporate into thin air?

These are the questions I am grappling with as I begin my new series; hopefully I will find my way to an understanding.

6 months later my mother passed away also. The space between my father's death and my mother's was filled with this work.

In process.......
