I painted this piece in only one day. It is a representation of my feelings of my fathers death on Tuesday, February 24, 2009. Each bird represents each of the people with him when he passed. We "watched" and held his hands as he "Flew Away." *This piece is currently for sale. It is beautiful unframed, but would look wonderful matted and framed to match your decor. It also works well with my other TRAIL OF TEARS paintings. *THE ORIGINAL IS A PART OF THE PRIVATE ART COLLECTION OF DR. BRADLEY AND CATHY HENRY OF LITTLE ROCK, AR.
