This piece is dedicated to =Tammara
who is going through a very difficult time right now. Her son Jeremiah passed away on the 30th of December.
I did this piece because I wanted to convey what I believe. I do not doubt that there is a world beyond this one. Death isn't the end, it is an
end. Not unlike graduating from high school and the transition from minor to adult. Death truly is a beginning
Jeremiah did not disappear. He returned home. He returned to a home he once knew and only forgot in this life. He returned to a home with people who love him and care for him. Tammara, your time apart is only a short while. You will
see your son again. You will again hold him. This will not stop the tears, or fill the void in your life. But I hope it can give you some peace and help your heart to heal. I hope that someday you can find reason to laugh and smile and love again. Because life can still be good, and it can still bring you much joy.
The mother runs towards her deceased son. She catches a glimpse of him, held on the arms of someone. She can't see who it is, but she watches as her son hugs the man back. This quick glimpse is meant to grant her a measure of peace.
There are a lot of things wrong with this. The more I worked on it, the more I saw it. But I am overall happy with it. And I do love how the dress came out. And sorry about the dress in the corner. I'd had too much of her colored in before I realized I was wrong there. If requested, I'll add more grass underneath to make matting easier for prints.
I also hope that this picture can help others find a little peace in the heartache of losing a loved one. Because this life isn't the end. There is something new and wonderful waiting for us on the other side. As well as all those beloved individuals who passed before us.Colors Used~ Skin ~
