Artist's Description

I did this portrait of the young aspiring journalist (Josephine Varnier Stone) that came to my home to interview me where i live and work in august of 2011"here":http://www.quailbellmagazine.com/3/post/2011/8/...
I found that she was killed at the young age of 23 by a hotel valet car on 10/29/2011 just 2 days before her and her husbands 2nd wedding anniversary. I am curating an exhibit “Sabor Feminina” at C’est Le Vin Art Gallery in Richmond, where in August, Josephine saw a show I had up there at that time called Gods and Goddesses,she tracked me down and interviewed me for the magazine “Quail Bell Magazine”.. I wanted to do a tribute painting in her honor that I will hang at Sabor Feminina when it opens in March as she was so supportive and interested in the arts, especially works by women and about women and the future ideas/projects I spoke to her about at that interview. I thought it would be nice to have her there in “spirit” by honoring her thru this painting. I will be gifting this painting to her husband, who was present when she was killed and is having a difficult time dealing with the loss of his young wife.
It was so tragic, this young lady had so much promise as a writer and journalist. I am hoping to have someone read some of her poetry at the opening as well.
