Nancy at Window of Condo


 How this artwork developed and the meaning behind it. 

   Using the post-impressionist style I made two compositions of Nancy looking from windows in condos at the beach. Her last month we spent the time at our condo in Sea Grove, FL., until see was too weak and decided to return home. She passed a week after we returned. I wanted to display her watching her 3 children from afar in a place of fond memories. This blog post follows some of the paintings development.
 I took artistic license to make the window prettier, Nancy in comfortable dress, and looking healthier.

" I made some small changes to the original composition. Adding small black dots to represent 3 children.
For reference we as a family spent Nancy's last month at our condo in Seagrove, Fl. until she asked to return home. I took no pictures as she was very frail. These are what my memory sees, based on abstract post-impressionism. A much better memory than the actual.The allegorical is she is watching her children from afar. In a place of fond memories."

 For 2018 Jazz Fest I made this customize-able  Chat Noir poster. Edit the wording, add Krewe name, other facts for your New Orleans visit spring 2018. The Foundation stop my art posters because they want to make big bucks on sales and hurt the small local artists.
