Oil on canvas, 2013

A friend had lost a her mother.  This is a painting of an embrace of comfort, one friend to another.  The woman is wrenched inside and the man is holding her giving what comfort and support he can.

I packed them into a tightly compressed, even cramped composition of this painting accentuates the mood the tension of the painting.

Painting is a joy, and, of course, my day to day work, but has also been a refuge.
