The beauty of portrait art is that it makes time standstill. I love this painting although the couple has not
been together for a long time, and it is a reminder of
multiple losses of people we loved and who meant
a great deal to us.
When the couple got divorced we lost the friendship
of the man in the painting. Years later after a sad
difference in thinking that created a gap impossible
to bridge, we lost the rest of the family.
When you lose friends for any reason it is sad.
But art makes this lovely and loving moment exist
in the present. It was heartfelt then, part
of a long and joyful love story. That reality
still exists here, and it makes me happy to
Have a loving your happy memories day.
