Cavernous Hoard

60" x 48"
I come from a long line of pack-rats. I eventually came to realize that this dragon was me.
This painting represents a shift in values when, within a very short time span, I watched as 4 special people let go of life. Part of me wants to keep their memory alive by hoarding the things that remind me of them, until I remember that ultimately they cared very little about material things and cared most about the people around them. Their memories will live in my heart forever.

I saw this one in real life and remember it made an impact on me. Such life and vibrance in the paint details and found objects. Good work Diana!

Wow, Diana, fantastic work. So sorry that it was inspired by such tragic events. They live on through you. Never let them be forgotten.
