The Circle of Life, Blah, Blah, Blah-a

“The Circle of Life, Blah, Blah, Blah” 48 x 48 0il 2001 by Tom Kelly

This painting is about the struggles of aging and dealing with the medical problems that are associated with aging. My parents, my siblings and I were experiencing the sad part of the circle of life. This scene was after my mother came home from New York where she had a fall and hit her head and was in the intensive care for a week. My father came in and my mother got up and put her head on his shoulder. Later that evening I went out and did a drawing recollecting the images.
