At The Precise Moment that Franz Schubert Heard The First Notes To His Next Composition– I go back to this painting often.  It’s over 10 years old now!  It always makes me happy when I look at it.

This painting is about breaking up, and the heartache felt with departure from a relationship.  It’s a painting of my x, but it’s also a self portrait in a way.  It’s a figure crying in the rain, broken as to why two people can’t stay together- I chose pastel and bright colors, turquoise, pinks, peaches and yellows because despite the loss of what was, I can still remember the breathtaking beauty of the times spent together.  Those colors usually only surface in those types of works.

Earlier this week I passed this boy and his dog sleeping on the street in the University District, Seattle and snapped a quick picture, which I worked off of hoping to capture with washed vagueness the bright autumn day and long shadows.
