Charcoal on Grey Paper 24 x 29” Framed 2019 Love after Love by Derek Walcott The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.

Oil on Panel 16 x 20″ 2019 This painting was started from life in my studio and was recently completed. I love the composition and the reference to our impressions of our own reflections. The gold mirror was in my TuTu’s house and the hand mirror set upon her dressing table until she left her home.
