About Letting Go

That is the title of this piece that I finished today. As part of a group of artists/friends, who meet daily to exchange tidbits about our lives, share tips and techniques, and enjoy each others company, we cheer each other on and share in the victories, and we also give comfort when life is not so perfect. Hearing of the losses experienced by a couple of these ladies, reminded me so much of the loss of my own grandparents and beloved pets through the years. These losses touch most of us because we have experienced similar times in our lives. On so many levels life is about learning to let go. Letting go of loved ones, letting go of our children as they grow, letting go of things that frustrate or irritate us. Things beyond our control. There is beauty in letting go. It may be hard to see, but it is there. That is what I hoped to convey in this piece. The beauty. Remember to look for the beauty.

  1. Her eyes are full of sorrow, but the bird is so symbolic… love the way she lets it go.I love the delicacy of this piece Pam, really beautiful, a perfect expression for your words

  2. Let it go…my 3 favorite words (after I love you, of course). I lost my oldest son in 1996. He was 17. He has spoken to me twice since his death. The first time he said “It’s ok, Mom” and a few years after that he said “Let it go, Mom.” Such wonderful gifts he has given me–words to guide me through difficult times. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and beautiful artwork.

  3. Pam, thank you for sharing. My son and his wife to be miscarried yesterday and I am filled with sadness for them. Your painting conveys a huge message and I see that baby in flight to peace.Dana
