This is "Ashes to Ashes". Byrdie my cat died a week before his 22nd birthday, in April 2011. The first thing I painted after he died was titled "Ghost Cat". It's a little sad feeling that one. Then I did this. I had him cremated and this was connected with that. That his ashes would meld with nature and he would become a part of it. I was a bit off I guess right after he died and it doesn't make a lot of logical sense now, but yet in some way it still makes sense to me; that he became of part of the world around me in some way......ashes to ashes.
