Artist's Description

MY FISHING BUDDIES NEPHEW WILLIAM DIED IN A SOLO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ONE WEEK AGO ON A FRIDAY. HE WAS GOING TO WORK, WHILE TRYING TO MERGE ONTO HIGHWAY 4 NEAR PACHECO IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, HE WAS BEHIND A LARGE TRUCK. AS WILLIAM PULLED OUT TO GO AROUND THE TRUCK, THE DRIVER PULLED OVER IN FRONT OF WILLIAM WITHOUT USING A TURN SIGNAL, OR LOOKING EITHER APPERANTLY. SO, WILLIAM DECIDED TO GO AROUND ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND PASS THIS IDIOT DRIVER. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE WAS A BROKEN DOWN CAR ON THE RIGHT SIDE, STICKING OUT INTO THE RIGHT LANE AND WAITING FOR A TOW TRUCK. ANYWAY, WILLIAM COULDN’T AVOID THE PARKED CAR AND HE HIT IT BREAKING HIS NECK. SO, WHILE WORKING ON SOME OTHER PHOTOS FOR PABLO TO TAKE TO THE FUNERAL, I TOLD HIM WE NEEDED TO MAKE “A TRIBUTE TO WILLIAM”. THIS IS WHAT WE CAME UP WITH. WILLIAM IS IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER, HIS FATHER, MOTHER, BROTHER AND SISTER ARE IN THE SMALL PHOTO NEXT TO HIM. THE PHOTO OF WILLIAM WITH HIS FAVORITE PAROT ON HIS RIGHT ARM IS NEXT AND THE PHOTO OF WILLIAM AND HIS NEW BRIDE ARE FINAL. ALL PLACED ABOVE THE FAMILY PHOTO OF HIS GREAT GRAND PARENTS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS. THE SMALL PHOTOS WERE TAKEN FROM WILLIAM’S, MY SPACE WEB SITE, SO WE WEREN’T ABLE TO GET MUCH SIZE OUT OF THEM. THEY WOULD JUST PIXELATE ALL TO PIECES IF WE GOT TOO BIG. SO, I DID THE BEST I COULD WITH WHAT PABLO HAD TO OFFER. NOW, WILLIAM IS FOREVER LINKED WITH HIS GRANDFATHER AND THE FAMILY. HIS LOVE FOR MOTORCYCLES AND FAMILY WILL FOREVER KEEP HIS SPIRIT ALIVE WITH THE REST OF THE LIVING MEMBERS OF THEIR CLAN.
