“Harriet Wilder Sorrows” captures the raw emotions of grief following the loss of my beloved wife of 39 years. This poignant piece, born from a plein air painting, serves as an expression of my shattered heart. Through this painting and its subsequent pastel drawing, I find solace in the act of artmaking, revealing my deepest self. The juxtaposition of a somber sky against a tortured landscape evokes tears, as I seek to share this profound experience with a buyer, enabling me to navigate the passage of time.
I make my pastel drawings are from professional grade pastels on archival paper.
