I have been trying to finish this painting I started a few years ago. My problem is I don’t know what to put on the letter my subject is holding. I do know I want it to be an end to a relationship.
Should she be writing the “Dear John” letter or receiving the bad news? At first I thought she was receiving it but now I know by the look on her face she is the one “dropping the ax.”
So, I will add a pen on the table beside her tea cup and write the letter – if only I could decide what the letter should say.
