I’ve just finished “The Long Goodbye”. You can go ahead and check the painting process in the “The Long Goodbye” photo album at Facebook. You can also email me for them if you don't have a Facebook account.
The story behind the painting:
One of the hardest things to go through in life is letting go of a beloved pet because of a terminal disease or a life threaten injury.
This is the last day these two friends from childhood will spend together. It is indeed a long good bye.
I’ve chosen a low key palette to harmonize with the emotional setting. In the final stages I decided to change the bright yellow sky for a gray one. I though the dark horizon with a storm brewing was the perfect symbol of a bad omen.
