( oil on 20"x24"canvas ) My daughter loves this painting. I gave it to her for her birthday. Nothing feels better than to give paintings to my beloved daughters. My dad was a painter and he was like this, too. He gave his artwork to loved ones. He also carved amazing birds in the last few years of his life. He died when he was only 67 of a heart attack. I don't think this type of grief ever leaves; it changes, that's all.
