This is a portrait of my mother painted in a room of her house. She posed for me so that I could convey the visual images that I had after listening to the song called “Song To Say Goodbye” by Placebo. The powerful lyrics of this song made me think about the confusing and painful emotions associated with death and how people cope with someone dying. The dead man falling from the ceiling was inspired by some magnificent dead people painted by Peter Paul Rubens.
