Note from Keith: I feel this is one of my best paintings. The entire story revolved around the heart of the man pictured lying on the stone. Consequently, all the visual elements of the picture lead the viewer’s eye to the man’s heart. Even the logs in the foreground, though they create a rhythm leading up to the tree, upon closer inspection also point directly to the man’s heart.
(Note from Donna Parkinson: This painting is the image we chose for the headstone for Keith’s final resting place). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission_San_Luis_Rey_de_Francia
