Another 2015 Couples Portrait
This is another one of the four paintings I finished in March 2015.
The couple in the picture is very dear to me; they gave me sanctuary when I was homeless during the Great Recession and cared for me during my own post-horrible-divorce Great Depression.
They came up with the pose, which they sat for in their library; they’re wearing their wedding clothes. There are all kinds of meaningful and special objects, with many funny stories, on the shelves behind them.
