about Cavernous Hoard

Dragons are known for jealously hoarding golden treasure deep within their caverns.
For a huge beast of a dragon what possible use is there for fine diamond rings and tiaras deep in a cavern? Yet she guards it ferociously because it’s hers! Such a hollow cavernous goal.

I come from a long line of pack-rats and eventually came to realize that she was me. This painting represents a shift in values when, within a very short time span, I watched as 4 special people let go of life. Part of me wants to keep their memory alive by hoarding the things that remind me of them, until I remember that ultimately they cared very little about material things and cared most about the people around them. Their memories will live in my heart forever.
