Death Bed

It was very tragic when I lost my husband as a result of a single gun shot wound to his head. This is one of my pieces depicting him on the hospital bed hooked up to the life support machine and me at the bedside crying with my head down. I know there were angels present so I drew and image of an angel hovering at his side. This piece was done in pastels. It was a very sad time in my life and I just wanted to capture this particular moment.

Death for me is now just a phase in life everyone has to go through whether or not they are prepared for it. After this tragic experience I now live my days to the fullest not knowing when the Creator will call my number.

So to all my readers, live life to the fullest. Life is too short. Stop the quarrels, make up with your significant other and just move on.


  1. Thank you for sharing such a personal and emotional experience. This is a very striking picture, with such brilliant and lively colours even though the moment was a sober one. Thank you for encouraging a healthy and positive perspective in such moments.

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Allison. I'm sorry you had to go through that.

  3. Everyone goes through trials and tribulations in life but according to the old time saying "God don't give you what you can't handle". It was a very sad time in my life Sir but I have grown so much and learned from this experience that I am better equipped now for trials ahead.
