This sketchbook is based on one of the prayers from the Roman Catholic funeral ritual. My parents died in 2017 and 2018, respectively. They were both very elderly and ill, so their deaths were not unexpected. Still, I was devastated. I was in my mid-'60s when my parents died, so I had been blessed with them for a long long time. As I go forward, I pray this prayer every day for them, for "all the faithful departed" and for my own healing.
The graphite "scribbles" (dated lower right corner) depict my various state of minds. The inked letters are reminiscent of old gravestone carvings. The color elements depict heaven.
