A most personal book, the artist, Jerry Gotkin, started to reflect on the variety of subjects that a most beautiful garden offered in the midst of the most intimate relationships of patients and families at a time of transition. The gardens become a metaphor for change that is experiencing and it grandly reassures the continuity that change brings. Many of these mixed-media paintings are permanently hung inside the walls of Hospice by the Sea. Some of the reproductions are at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. at the American Art/National Portrait Gallery Library under the title, “Marjorie and Jerry Gotkin Collection 1965-2007
