The Stages of Grief

Wendy Cross's avatar Wendy Cross

Grief is the most disabling emotion. It causes apathy and exacerbates depression. When my mother died I was completely unprepared for the grief that followed. She was a native New Yorker and a patron of the arts. In the weeks after her death, I found solace by painting this imaginary landscape with some famous New York landmarks and tributes to modern artists. These were the clouds visible from her hospital window the day before she died.
