"Alone"

Held, almost suspended in the air of an old and dimly lit hotel room, the ambiance of history floated down from the tops of the curtains to settle silently on the plain and threadbare bed sheets.  Secrets held in the antiques that sparsely decorated the room whispered as I sat on the edge of the bed. Through the eye of timelessness, the vision of a woman lying on the bed, alone, gave me a sense of inner peace.  A peace that I long for in the busy day to day hustle of life. A peace that perhaps we all long for; a vision sifting through the room to allow me to experience that peace for a moment in time, and record forever on canvas. 

During the time I spent creating Alone, I came to realize that what was being represented for me was a sense of being in the space of solitude. This painting represents the difference between alone and lonely. I felt no sense of isolation or sadness in the scene, nor in the experience of the woman lying there. For me, it is an experience of comfort and nurturing, a time of timelessness and restful freedom from all the stresses and demands of the world outside her room.
