Finally Posting This Diptych

"Until Death Us Do Part"
each 18" x 18" - acrylic on canvas
I completed this diptych about 2 months ago but I haven't posted it yet because I could not come up with a name for it. I finally named it tonight. This was painted when my father's health was declining rapidly and we were all waiting for his death...he held on until seven days after his 89th birthday. My dad was a great fisherman and was always on the waters of Lake Murray. I remember thinking about the transition from his wordly body to his eternal Heaven while painting this....he was a believer and he raised his children to believe in Christ also. With this being a diptych, I thought "Until Death Us Do Part" would be an appropriate title.
