the afterlife

This painting came to me several months after my
grandmother passed away. At her funeral we burned a
cardboard dvd player so she could take it with her in her
afterlife. She use to watch a lot of Chinese soaps. I kept
trying to imagine what it looked like.
Here she is sitting on the couch she use to sit at
watching tv. Along with her is my late hamster,
Hammy, Bono the bonsai tree, a beloved Christmas tree
that was a gift, several gold fish, four pet turtles, and
my Chinese fighting fish that died jumping out of it's
bowl one day.
