After my father passed away in January 2020, I interpreted several images through the lens of his death. The painting on the right is entitled, "Nearing the End of the Day". It is set in Bonavista, Newfoundland at the end of a summer day. I had received a call from home earlier that day indicating that my dad may pass at any moment. I knew the end was near.
"Nearing the End of the Day"
This painting is called " Heaven’s Gate". This is also an image from Bonavista, Newfoundland. It is slightly closer to the ocean than "Nearing the End of the Day". You can see the same rolling hills in the painting. I was so taken by the beauty of Bonavista and this scene specifically, I felt that if there was a place on earth that you could step from earth to heaven that this would be the place.
This painting was inspired from a lovely little place called Bonavista Bicycle PIcnics & Cafe. Again you can see the rolling hills through the open door. The open door leads to the view I have termed, Heaven's Gate. I imagine that my dad has just left the cafe.
"Until We Meet Again"
This painting is inspired after a November walk in High Park, Toronto with a girlfriend and our conversation on aging parents. I was struck by the size of this tree and the how the main trunk had broken off but the tree was still very much alive. It had survived this loss. It made me think of my family.
"The Family Tree"
With every spring there is a new birth, new life. We can always count on spring and we know that the flowers will bloom again no matter what we have been through in the past.
"And The Flowers will Bloom Again"
Inspired from a scene in High Park, this painting is an abstract depiction of something familiar. It is "Beyond" the world we know.
