life after death
By Carla Wettstein
I think that after death life goes on. I find lots of similarities in nature with our organs or bones.
Could be that after death one of our organs or bones is integrated into nature and lives on. On the far right of this painting you can see a bronchial tree (medical expression)

We learn that we have to let go in our lives,
be it of our own existence, or that of a loved one.
Realizing that love carries on is a connection we can make
in understanding that life may end, but love does not.
It can give us hope and make us see the great help that love is
when letting go of the physical body:
A ride of lasting love into infinity and beyond.
My painting is roughly sized 1.5m x 1.5m - a large wall hanging
Diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2014 and following a stem cell transplant last year I am thankful to be in remission. Having cancer has been a life changing experience for me, priorities change, each and every day presents a new beginning, I am constantly humbled by the strength and bravery of many other sufferers who still smile and look on life as a treasured gift and who simply get on with the joy of living.
Being passionate about colour and peoples stories, Frida Kahlo's story resonates strongly with me. My painting is a reflection of that and my imagination.
Little sister is annoying when we are thinking differently but she stay with my hole life. Who knows that one day I have to take care of her seem like I’m a mother. I saw her when she were little until now and will see her everyday until my fulfilment end life. Sister is still sister no matter how much she naughty she’s still my little sister.
My art was digital line drawing of my little sister

Just Before You Go
By Teresa Maynard
My sister was an accomplished artist and studied to be an art physiologist. She always said when you retire we can do things together. Sadly we didn’t get this time as she passed away 14yrs ago. When she was in palliative care I visited her one last time. We drove home to Canberra from Victoria and all I wanted to do was go back. 3yrs ago I wondered if I could paint so I sought out some lessons. I believe that she guided me to paint and I can still hear her say “Just know that you are loved”
HERE and NOW
By Sharon Brett
This work is about the support needed and given when someone has a terminal diagnosis. Being there and sharing the laughs as well as the tears.
