Good-bye, James Thornton

The burial of a great artist...
My father, James Thornton was laid to rest today. And I want to share something with you, about art. Sometimes art is not about techniques, workshops or exhibitions. Today, my family members dipped their hand in paint and covered my father's coffin with bright prints. It was a final form ...of fare-well, bringing everyone together in a way that broke the barrier between life and death. Good-bye, Dad.
