What's Left Behind...- from "The Eternal WHYs" series by 

A few months ago one of my best girlfriends notified me that her husband left her, after 23 years of marriage. I could feel her pain and suffering in her voice. He always was the center of her Universe, he meant everything to her.
I also could hear the hope in her voice; the hope for his returning to her.
I spent a lot of time trying to be next to her, to support her; wasn’t much I really could do for her, unfortunately.

This unhappy event in my friend’s life inspired me to paint a Series of 3 paintings,from “The Eternal WHYs” series and depicting 3 different moments in a woman’s life, in such a painful period.

This piece is the 1st of the Series, and speaks about the 1st period; the moment when a young and beautiful Lady learns about being abandoned. She still is hoping (her dress is green) to have the Love of Her Life back; left his hat there.

Please read the Full Description…:) The from “The Eternal WHYs” series is exhibited here in my Gallery, please check them out…:)

In real these paintings look very, very impressive. I painted the women’s bodies using Gold and Bronze.
In the 3 paintings there are 3 different women.
I opted for this skin color because I wanted the artworks to tell a sad story that can happen in any women’s life, anywhere on the globe. For the same reason the women does not have faces either.

To emphasize the message of each painting, and the 3 different captured moments, I used the colors according to the depicted phase. My choice of the technique I used for the execution of this Series, serves the same purpose.

Original paintings are for Sale.
18×24 Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, all framed, ready to hang.
The frames are Gold, 3in wide.
