Arthington RIP Jasmin x

Sitting in the sun as tears melted my face
I tried not to look I tried not to gaze
The shifting circles of water along the edge of the bed
Merrilly changing colour a spiralling watery thread.
Heat was surrounding my lonely ordeal
My head pounded softley, only pain could I feel
Circles and spirals swirling around
I stood up and fell back awkwardly onto the ground
I wrote her name into the sand
I stole a glimpse and looked around
My heart beat ended in that place
Her death my life I still need to face
The tree stood still amongst this scene
The same tree was the last that Jasmin had seen
Then the sun drove me away
but i wanted to stay

Arthington RIP Jasmin x

Artist's Description

Visiting the place where Jasmin died. An inspirational place, a quiet beauty spot, hard to find with very few visitors.

I am at the beginning of a long journey. A journey of forgiveness and understanding. A sojourn which I must undertake to be able to love and live again.

Jasmin Cai Neville 1989-1997 rest in peace my beautiful angel.

Jasmine Neville my daughter and Charlea Fox one of her school friends drowned in the River Wharfe at a beauty spot near Arthington, West Yorkshire UK in 1997 .

I will continue to change her face throughout my life.
The canvas stays the same the memories images and emotions forever alter.

This represents my journey, her ever changing face reflected through many different memories and painful emotions. Just trying to keep her memory alive.
The hope is one day to finish her portrait to help me finaly accept a kind of peace within myself.

More images of this work in progress are contained in my port folio on the profile page.
