I just broke up with my boyfriend Felix Forrest yesterday. I knew it was coming, but it is unbelievably sad; I loved him so much. But such is life; I have so many beautiful paintings of him and of the two of us as a couple; looking at them breaks my heart; in fact, this whole blog for the last year and half is filled as much with him as it is with me. I know we will be friends in the long run, but for now, it all feels so hopeless and sad. In my paintings of us we will always be young, fresh, happy and in love. Its beautiful and so fortunate that I have the gift to memorialize these emotions, if only in the fantasy of art. I will miss you Felix.
A drawing of Felix as Anteros, one of the ancient Greek gods of love. I painted it from life over a 10 hour period. Well, really longer, since I couldn't keep my hands off him and every time he came over I could only get in about an hour before, well, I got distracted.

And the two of us, when my heart was at its happiest.
