Letting him go / not letting him go (gouache 1998)

A sky of swirling bright and dark blue overlooks a single gravestone with wreathe-like clusters of flowers set in the surrounding grass. A crimson sun sets behind the grave. The white ethereal body of a young man floats above the grave. To the left of frame, a woman sits in a wheelchair, her body and long gown reflecting the crimson sun. She is holding the young man’s leg with her right hand. A blue angel hovers in the top right quarter of the painting, holding the young man by his shoulders.
