Companions

Date Created: September 20, 2020
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.

The two lifelong companions show their mutual love for each other with a gentle hug.
