Stories Without Words

This painting, "Last Visit", was one that I've always liked.

The story of this painting starts with a glance. I was shooting photos for my book, "Watercolor Made Easy: Portraits" and my model, Ron, was taking a break in between poses. I noticed him looking out the window and snapped this photo. Later, when I saw this image, I thought of someone visiting a person, place, or memory for the last time. I wanted to create a sense of longing, loss, or acceptance, depending on the viewer's own personal way story.
