Keep on the Sunny side



 I was commissioned to do a portrait of Sunny who passed away recently; a horse who I am told will be missed and is loved by many. 

“How terrible it is to love something that death can touch.”

  Death is something that no one will be spared from. It is one of the absolutes in our world and it is a very permanent thing but it is not a bad thing. It is not bad to die and is it not bad for others to die. So as painful as it can be it is something we must to learn to embrace and understand. The people in our lives are a gift lent to us for a short time then taken back from whence they came. From the ground we are made to the ground we shall return.
