This is the idea that started the whole series into motion. When my father and grandmother passed within months of each other and I graduated from college and moved my family across the country all at the same time, I began to experience heart palpitations. They were coupled with irrational fear, lack of self confidence, blurred vision, histamine response and a feeling of being trapped. This was the first time in all of my years of being married to someone with anxiety that I finally personally understood it. This painting represents the weight of grief and sympathy.
