Abat-Jour ~ Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow ~ Paint Party Friday week #51

Saying good-bye to a dear departed pet, sorting out a few differences and enjoying a little bit of nostalgic cinema together.


We said goodbye to Lupe's loyal companion....Lupe December 19th/ 2001 ~ February 27th/2012...11 years young .


Waiting for a call to hear when Lupe will be returning back home.


Thinking mom will find it hard returning to her home without Lupe there.
Lupe will no more be waiting for her return by the side light of the door.....

Since Lupe's passing my mom has stayed with us and needless to say I haven't had much time for my art but I did get a little down time to do a little sketching for Paint Party Friday Last night, M set us up in my bedroom with my computer and Netflix and we got to watch

a funny Italian Oldie...."Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow". Of course that famous strip tease scene never fails to make us laugh .

And while searching for photos I discovered this gorgeous image of Sophia with a little pooch  who looks quite a bit like our dear Lupe.

Listening to the background music and lyrics , it gave me inspiration. I sketched this image of a gothic window ~ church window with webs and a spider and floating helicopter seeds. The sunlight breaking through the darkness; with Lupe's passing thou but sad, his spirit rises in the sun's warm light. The seeds representing rebirth are on their journey from one plane to the next.....seeing the Luce Blu : )

So this is it for this week's Paint Party Friday Week #51...Please drop in on the other participating artists.

Until next time.....

Beautiful sketch of the window. So sorry to hear anyone who loses a loved pet. You are kind to invite her to stay the night. It will be lonely for her in the days to come.

I love your memorial sketch for Lupe. I am just loving the seeds falling among the spiderwebs... so mysterious looking and gives movement.

It is so hard to say good bye to our beloved furry family members. Why do they not live as long as we do? I'll never understand this. Sincere sympathy to your mother, bless her heart. And bless Lupe's little soul... Godspeed Lupe.

Linda R said...

That has to be so hard for you Mom. It is never easy to lose our furry friends..

Your sketch looks wonderful.

Sometimes a haunting melody can make quiet an impression ~^..^~
Thanks to Vic Mizzy for creating such unforgettable soundtracks and to Hollis Kim for sharing this fab rendition of the Haunted Organ from The Ghost and Mr. Chicken ….will always luv listening to it, no matter the time of year but especially great in the month of October
