Homage to a wonderful Italian I knew

Recently, my family lost the most wonderful, proud Italian, my father-in-law, the man my husband was named after, although I called him Mr. V. He lived a long life full of family and good friends and was a supportive and loving grandfather to my two sons.  He loved me unconditionally and I will always treasure our time together, especially the times we shared on the golf course.

This piece kind of rattled around in my head for a week while I was acknowledging his death and my grief. It’s called, Final Ascension. I started with a drawer, added plaster to the inside,  a layered background, then encaustic wax and oils. The piece from a watch hanging on the outside right frame represents time unraveling, and small pieces of watches embedded into the wax show the path through the sky toward the top.
