Gilbert


There is a verse in the Bible that states, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."  I certainly find hope in that verse and pray that in some small way my painting could be a part of that comfort.  Gilbert loved Thomas the Train and in the reference photo for this painting he has eyes that are full of life and "little boy" mischief.  I do not think there is any grief equivalent to that of a little person leaving this life too soon.

While painting this, I found myself asking Gilbert, "Help me little buddy.  Help me paint your picture."
