When You Are Gone
Excuse the pun, but I am always drawn to the people I paint, and with Alexandra this was most true. Alexandra is a lady that jogs past my home frequently, and I couldn't help notice the great character she possessed, so one day I just had to stop her and ask if she would be interested in sitting for me, thankfully she said yes. When painting her I made great effort to connect with her emotions and inner straight, I feel I was successful with this task and managed to glimpse and capture part of her soul on canvas.
