I made many of these Together-alone paintings just before leaving Cyprus.... with this one, again, the emotional pivot of the painting seems to be leaving by the extreme left edge of frame.. (click to view it enlarged) and those iconic shutters remain to occupy the centre - my idee fixe. I often worked in the studio of a wonderful artist called Nicholas Panayi (see links) which was full of these louvered shutters. Don't ask me why, but I guess it must sort of work, because it was purchased by a painter I revere... Then again... maybe it doesn't, because, when I first had it framed, the framer just didn't get it and covered up the woman's face completely...
