Each painting within the 42 series is unique and compositionally different from the next. The varying amounts of visual information makes some of the works look more complete than others which was a conscious choice I made.
The story I told about a significant loved one in my life battling cancer is not over. His story continues against the statistical odds with so much unknown and intense hope. With our family story still being written, so are the stories of each of these paintings. When all 42 works are displayed together there is a sense of organized chaos which mimics the communal experiences of love, sadness, joy, and fear that makes family so important.
