Cemetery, Sarajevo

Derek Alvarez, Cemetery, Sarajevo, Hand Painted on the iPad using Procreate, 2018

One thing I can’t help but notice while walking around Sarajevo is all the cemeteries dotted along the hillsides… I’m sure it’s partly because I recently had to bury my stillborn daughter that I really notice the graves. With Spring upon us, I also noticed all the wildflowers springing up around the graves and it made me think of the circle of life and renewal. I painted the graves to mirror the color of the sky, which gives them a heavenly aura and is a nice thought for me.
