Grief has it’s own rhythm


Grief has it’s own rhythm

Grief has it’s own rhythm, it ebbs and flows as it must. One person in this process, Marcia Marshall, a Chicago area portrait artist, began drawing portraits of loved ones who have passed away as part of her healing journey.

Touched by the energy and passion of her work, Chicago Jewish Funerals has invited Marcia to share her evocative portraits with our community. Once a month, we will feature one of her ink portraits. We hope you find Marcia’s artwork to be as comforting, joyful and expressive as we do.

Being a portrait artist is not simply about capturing the likeness of a person. I believe it’s deeply evocative soul work. The lyrical movement of my hand, as I draw or paint, is the conduit for expression. It’s a spiritual process….infused with energy, connection and heart. Each unique portrait becomes a warm memory of the individual who died.

Meet Mike, he was a rugged outdoors man, a lover of nature and most of all, devoted to his beloved family. His passing was honored in prayer and celebrated in his wooded backyard with spectacular bursts of firecrackers. He was that vibrant!

Marcia L. Marshall
