Artist's Notes:

"Mourning Dove" is a painting that visually represented the feelings of sadness and sorrow over the loss of loved ones in my own life.  While driving through the cemetery, I was touched by the sight of a stone angel with large beautiful wings which was draped over a family monument as if in protection.  Upon hearing the call of an actual mourning dove, it seemed an appropriate name for this painting as I asked God for comfort.
