Through a Glass Darkly

This is one of the first in the Paris collection. The wash of yellow indicates promise but it is far off and muted. The four girls/women ban together, facing the light. They are armed, bare and vulnerable. If you look carefully, you can see how the woman in the foreground holds the edges of a gossamer gown, attempting to protect the others. Of course, she can't but she can tell the truth about the dangers, the lies, the distortions. The word in the lower right hand corner is love in Arabic. (The original is approx 9x12, its selling price is $300.00. The framed copy is larger (10-1/2x21" inside a pewter frame, black mat, which makes the entire piece 28x22", its selling price is $350.00)
