Title: Remembrance
Artist: Valerie Kost (view all works by artist)
Contest: Reaper Sugar Skull painting Contest.
Symbols and colors chosen to honor our kitties that have passed on. Cobwebs represent death, and the marigolds lead the paw prints of our lost kitties towards the eye. Candles in the eyes represent remembrance, so the hope is our kitties follow to path to our candle. The purple of the heart represents the pain of losing them, but the love they give is greater than the pain.
