Based on the song by Karla Bonoff, “The Water Is Wide” this song was “our” song. However, as I was painting it I got carried away with the stormy sky which then meant the seas had to be more turbulent. I was swept away painting this and completely lost myself in it. There is another message there too, that time waits for no man (or woman). The large ship sailing off in the sunset has left behind the small boat crashing into the shore of perhaps a deserted island. 




The Letter

Spotlight of time in Nottoway Plantation, White Castle, LA.. A rose dropping it’s pedals on the crumpled letter, next to a handkerchief and what remains of a lipstick stained wine glass. The dark room reflects the mood inside, yet life rushes on outside, in a sun drenched courtyard. When tragedy strikes, life continues, the tears collected in the handkerchief, the wine, to dull the sorrow, lost love, drops from the pedals, the pain eases only with time. We’ve all experienced these moments, but we become stronger with all the wonderful memories.
