Is She Waiting for Her Lover?






In this painting from the Remembrances series, we see a young woman from the 1900's who is quietly waiting. Is she waiting for her beau? If so, is her on his way? Has he forgotten? While I was working on this image, I felt that it was a person she was waiting for.

These old images are created with modern techniques to bring the essence into the now. Although customs, communication and dress have changed, have our desires to be cherished changed?

This painting needs no framing. 60 x 80 cm. $2000, @Artfinder
