Remembering the dead has always been hard for me.
My latest loss coincided with Halloween and Dia de los Muertes and that has made it oddly easier to bear. I had a ready outlet for art therapy.
I began by memorializing Tula, and then, needing even more therapy, I moved on to Georgie and Chihiro, and Queen of Heaven.
The blazing hot palette set me free.
Finally I painted this regal, reclining cat.
May they all find a home in the Happy Hunting Ground
