|"The Alchemy of Sorrow"|
So many ingredients swirl around inside a person who has lost those they love. There is an alchemy, deepening the person's capacity to feel, especially empathy, and there is a strength that grows as well, a maturity that is only gained in this way. Believing the person(s) we have lost are immortal, that in some fashion they are still alive, is very comforting.
"The Alchemy of Sorrow" is 20"H x 16"W, acrylic and paper on wood panel. It will be for sale on my website, ellecoyote.com.
