Artist's Description

On Saturday, April 26th, the California Transplant Donor Network held a gathering in honor of the families of our loved ones whose organ donation made it possible for another life to continue on; even as we mourned together the loss of our beloved Rey; there was a feeling of peace that we all shared…that he lives on in another person who otherwise would not have had a chance. There were many tears as we watched the slideshow, realizing that we were not alone…all the families in that gathering had experienced that same tremendous loss and were there to honor and remember that gift of life given to another human being; and their family…yes, it was difficult, but also very touching and uplifting; the volunteers at the gathering were very tender and compassionate, it was an experience I will never forget. The photo of Rey I selected was one I took of him just this past year; the painting he was working on was so awesome, not only because he used my daughter, Phoebe, as the model, but because it was so vibrant and entrancing; so alive and representative of his amazing talent. I wanted them all to know my artist, Reynaldo, and see for themselves his wonderful creation…he will live on, not only through the donation of life he gave…but also through his beautiful and unforgettable works of art.
