Angelia: "This is 'Justin with Rowdy', completed 2008, the last painting by Justine H. Parish. It was an honor to have known Justine for part of her full and beautiful life. Her family portraits are treasures, each one a project of love."
Justin Wisniewski: Because of Angelia's intimate connection with this painting, I asked her a few questions about it...
- What made you choose this painting over others?
- Who is the boy?
- Who is the dog?
- Is this intended to be an artistic description of a specific thing (the relationship between the boy and the dog for instance) or do you think it's a more general statement about life or both?
- Did the artist ever share any thoughts on art or on life that you found rang true or were interesting?
Thanks, Justin, for the opportunity to share a painting I love.
