My Dad's Happy Place
My father passed away last year from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after a short but intense struggle. Twenty years ago, he and his wife built their dream home - a log house on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where they could wake up each day to beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay. Visiting my Stepmom this summer on what would have been my Dad's 89th birthday, I was captivated by a spectacular sunset that is the inspiration for my painting "Eastern Shore". This painting evokes a feeling of comfort and serenity. I know my Dad would have appreciated it and on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, I remember Alfred Lee Gilman 1930-2018.
