The Unexpected, oil and gouache, 12 x 16", 2013
The Unexpected was inspired by the plight of Martin’s sister, another victim of the Boston Marathon bombings. I had no image from which to work but imagined her and her predicament. I chose to put her in a fancy dress sitting in a formal chair to contrast with the rawness of her limb.
The dog is based on my newly adopted puppy from a litter I learned about unexpectedly.
