Artist's Description

We were going through old relics we found in the attic of our old victorian home we had just bought. I came across a painting covered in several old cloths tucked away in the corner.

I decided she deserved to be seen, afterall it was a beautiful piece of art and times have certainly changed in viewing nudes. After great debate we hung it in the library. I loved the light in the room and it felt right. A few weeks had past and one early morning I walked into the library to grab a book to read out on the porch. But instead the room had changed, I shook my head in disbelief. I saw her laying on a sofa and the morning light slightly hitting her face. The cloth that she had worn had fallen, and a tall handsome man with his palette painting on a canvas. They’re laughter filled the room as he told her how beautiful she looked. My head began to spin, and i fainted at the sight and when i awoke my arm felt burned. As i looked down a faded rose appeared on my arm just like hers. Was I her? ….
