"Ashes to Ashes"

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.
