2004: The Journey, The Message

2004, 8x10, Artist's Private Collection

This abstract is titled 2004 because it represents my life during that year. Losing both parents in one year was not easy. There were times that were really dark with only a glimmer of hope to keep me going. The loss and grief I experienced helped me realize the importance of learning to roll with the ups and downs life brings our way--ups and downs that provide opportunities to trust God in all things. 

Created in loving memory of my parents Harvey and Aileen Jeffries who transitioned to their heavenly home in 2004. They lived long, full lives and were loved by those who had the privilege of knowing them. Their presence is still greatly missed but they live on in my heart. This piece is in my personal collection and is not for sale; however, commissions for a similar painting are welcome.
