Yes, this may be a grave post, but as artist, I think about death. I don’t think about death necessarily in a depressed or creepy way, just about the thing itself as well as the customs and rituals around it.
I wanted to make my will and pick out my burial ground and headstone. The only thing I really have to leave to anyone is my art (paintings, drawings, prints, and books I’ve made with M). I think I would want my family to pick out what they want and the rest to be donated.
I found family buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Paris, AR and thought that could be a good place – it would connect me to someone and somewhere from a historical perspective. Honestly, I don’t know anyone who actively visits gravesides, so I don’t think it really matters where I’m buried because I don’t think anyone will visit the place.
I looked on Pinterest for headstone ideas – and there were themes of figures, angels, baby angels, pets, etc.
Of course there are many new and modern ways to be buried.
Just for fun – some artists graves.
