Wife's last good by to her husband - A Story in PaintsteemCreated with Sketch.

in painting •  last year

"And the relationships that happen become so intense, deep, involved and complex and really hard to say goodbye to. The hardest part of the show is saying goodbye when it's all done. It really breaks you." Genevieve Gorder

  When a husband and a father departs, he leaves for his loving wife and children the legacy of becoming a widow and orphans. More so than that, he leaves behind the shattered dreams and a void that cannot be filled.  

  Last year, in memory of my father, I made a couple of paintings. One of our family (my mother and her 3 daughters) saying the last goodbye and the other representing my mother’s early struggle to handle the burden of the world and the loneliness that this tragedy brought with it.
