Beginnings

Beginnings, 18x36 oil

I painted 'Beginnings' in response to the upcoming show The Journey, at the Art Gallery of Burlington this coming April.  My thoughts were on my daughter's upcoming wedding this spring, and my niece's two young children.  While thinking about all the scary, but wonderful beginnings a person takes in their life, I receive a call from my sister that our father is being rushed to the hospital, (yet again), and only last week having arranged care and meals for our mom.  It's a sobering thought that every journey comes to an end eventually, sometimes very smoothly, and sometimes with a lot of bumps in the road.
