I’ve created a lot of personal artworks over the years including some that portray deep feelings and/or aspects of my illness and yet few have made me actually cry during their creation. This is one of those artworks during which I cried while creating. As soon as I wrapped that Goffin’s little wing around her shoulder, I cried. When I moved his eye too look up at her and her at him, I cried. It just brought back so many memories of the Goffin Cockatoo that I once had as a companion. I miss him so. And now I’m starting to tear up once again. This piece just stirs up so many memories for me of love and loss.
