From the original 20” x 24” oil


From my series of multi-sensory paintings that include a short story and music, this piece depicts the moment a young widow and mother of three reads a passage that changes her perspective on life – and asks the question “Whom amongst us are the truly “fortunate”? Was she?


The reference for this was simply a photo shoot I took of a girl living in town, along with the restored home of an architect I worked for back in college. The home, filled with original stained-glass windows, was the first source of “inspiration” with nothing more in mind but the visual beauty of the home. Only after the poses were shot, and I studied the model’s somber expression, did the story seem to write itself. I was simply “illustrating” with paint, an experience or life that already may have already existed?
