Over the last 18 months, I’ve continued to use art and painting to process the loss of my young son.
This painting is another attempt to convey my feelings. It’s simple, really. Having three living children does not diminish the loss of my youngest.
Geese often represent providence in Christian art. Surrounded by these three geese, which represent my living children, I’m forced to face the realization that the same God who gives, also takes away. Attempting to answer the unanswerable questions that come with tragedies such as this, I’ve often turned my back to faith and held onto sorrow.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my art. ~Scarlett
