|Detail of Jessica in Spirit|
|The Three Spirits in the waterfall foam.|
As I looked at the photo later, I loved the way the spray from the waterfall rose up in the form of three women. It was as if they were welcoming Jessie's spirit. So I decided to do a watercolor painting depicting this.
|Welcoming Jessica's Spirit|
This is what came about.
During the ceremony, the Lovies released baloons that they'd written messages on, so I included them.
|Loving messages to accompany Jess on her new journeys.|
They also brought flowers and each person tossed one into the water along with blessings and prayers. So I included some flowers on the rock near Jess's spirit feet.
|Beautiful flower gifts.|
