'Nest II (Reality)' Narrative Oil Paintings by Paula Peacock

Nest II (Reality)
12" x 16"
Oil on Linen
From the 'Altered Soul' Series 
(The Art of Grief)
Generated after the death of my son.

This is no longer the fantasy of a warm and cozy home. This has become my reality. The pear on the right is cracked and broken open, its' essence is gone. What is left is an empty shell, an encasing, a vessel that is no longer needed. Still in the home on this plane, my daughter and feel shattered, irreversibly changed, never to be the same again.

"If you ask me what I came to do I this world, I, an artist, will answer you:
I am here to live out loud"
Emile Zola
