Leaving the Table, Acrylic on canvas, 28cm x 35cm
A look at grief. When one leaves a long term relationship, the other is left to grieve at the loss of rituals such as breakfast at the table. She too must leave the table, and come back with a new ritual that encompasses completeness in breakfast for one.
I thought of musical notes now missing: the clink of the spoon against the coffee cup, the scrape of the chair, the baritone cough. I thought about what now must come, a determination to continue and write a new song.
