I absolutly love this painting...nice work!

John, this makes me feel like my heart is filling with tears! Even the colors portray the bleakness of this man's situation. The painting tells the whole story, and at the same time, none of it. Amazing work!

It speaks to the need for an open and honest discourse on euthanasia in this 21st century.

As a fine art painting it is beautiful execution, but I think the subject matter, or idea, is horrible. Just terrible.

really beautiful. i love the light and dark , and ya the subjet manner. wonderful work John . T

This really tugs at my heart strings. Great work of art.

Let us pray the phone rang; someone came to the door; anything to divert this terrible event from happening. My family has been hit hard by suicide: my sister's daughter died by her own hand last summer. Bonnie has not stopped weeping--she never will.

I can feel his pain and agony and all the thoughts running through his mind you have painted it with care and thoughtfulness

your ability to capture such strong emotion is amazing!
