‎'When You're This Close To The Sun Nothing Else Matters'

 
‎'When You're This Close To The Sun Nothing Else Matters' Acrylic glitter and tissue paper on canvas, 50 x 40 cm
 
This latest piece has been painted as I contemplate what everything means to each of us, my Grandmother is currently extremely ill in hospital will she be worried about all that she acquired during her time here? Not really all those trips out to just get this just get that it doesn't matter anymore.
Our lives are filled with gathering and collecting striving and achieving its what keeps us going,but while we do all that I'm mindful that none of it matters none of it.
If we are not loyal , giving  and truthful no one cares how big your car is whether you have the latest gadget or clothes.
Your life will be rendered meaningless ( as we have seen with recent media personality revelations) when we get to our final hours we should hope that our actions in life will be remembered with kind affection for the charity of our hearts not the bank account we cant spend.
My Gran will be remembered by all who knew her for her charity and giving of her life to the care of others.
