Link to Piece:

Published in numerous books and magazines, most recently in the artist/author’s PROMETHEAN FLAMES, it is valuable and collectible work.

This painting executed in the Old Masters mixed-technique of egg tempera and oil expresses the sense of loss we all feel at one time or another. The figure, in a state of grief, contemplates the giant black rose in a ‘shared bed’. The artist must be fearless in expressing the spectrum of emotions and challenges we face in life. This painting serves as a cathartic release for all of us.

    Beautiful painting. I recently created a piece on my blog reflecting a similar emotion but done photographically.
    Thanks for doing this. Barry
