Artist's Description

In the begining this picture started out as a simple snap shot of a lone bird singing down the sun in the cemetery upon the hill. Later I discovered this to mean so much more as you will see. Earlier in the day I had went shopping at some local thrift stores to find some broke down tennis shoes for a picture that I had been planning to do. You see at my dads funeral my aunt had written a poem titled "Life"s Race". I had put it off long enough and felt I found good direction in what kind of picture I was needing for the poem. A broke down pair of running shoes is the whole object of the picture. Latter I was to meet up with one of my best friends to look at the headstone that had been installed only the day before at the cemetery for my dad. After wondering amongst the many stones we had decided to head over to another cemetery….

Now this is where it gets weird …
We have allot of “Relatives” in this cemetery but I can Honestly say I have no idea who this stranger is with the running shoes beside his grave. You see the name on the headstone is my dads last name, and only hours before had bought running shoes for a picture for my dads poem!!! My poor friend was almost launched thru the windshield of the car when I stumbled upon this. As you see a single song bird in the cemetery tree upon the hill turned into a story beyond my whole imagination.
I have yet to do the picture with the poem… soon…
