How I Deal With Grief
I put my sorrow on the paper in the form of watercolor. As the image becomes clearer, my grief starts to change. It seems to leave and pour out in the art. Better out then in. I channel all the sorrow, happy, or anger in this way. Super Pig tells me that even Terri Pritchett wrote from a point of rage as Neil Gaiman said of his friend in an interview with the Guardian. This past week has been filled with emotions and wrapped with memories and happiness as well. Being an artist, I have other artist that inspire me and push me to new levels. David Bowie was one of those individuals.
About “Finding Major Tom”
This image was inspired by the album “Black Star”. As you can see the alien landscape and the spacesuit have been incorporated in this watercolor. Super Pig has landed, and is accompanied by his friends, Ginny the Guinea Pig, and Mango the cat. They are carefully kneeling down, reverent in their observing of the space suit that once held Major Tom. They know and understand that this being has gone on to a much larger canvas, but they pause to honor the life that touch so many including this artist.
