In the unpredictable dance of creation, AI can be a surprising partner, pulling from the ether what feels like echoes of our deepest selves. The above images that emerged from the AI was startlingly familiar, as if plucked from my father’s vibrant oeuvre. His paintings, alive with psychedelic energy and technical precision, often featured characters lost in a particular stare, a furrowed brow that I’ve come to adopt in my own work.

The serendipity of the AI’s creation, with its tall heads and intense gazes, seemed to channel my father’s spirit, bridging decades of artistic evolution. It was a moment of profound connection, a visual reincarnation that compelled me to transpose this digital apparition onto canvas with oil paints. In doing so, I was honoring not only his memory but the timeless nature of art itself.

Painting the AI-generated image became a part of my healing, a way to process grief through the act of creation. As my brush strokes followed the AI’s blueprint, it felt like a collaboration with the past, a tender conversation with my father. The result was more than a reproduction; it was a synthesis of his influence, the AI’s input, and my personal journey as an artist.
