This painting began as a dream, in which I missed a train. In the dream, I received a phone call from the person, who (I knew) was waiting for me on this train (which was already leaving the station). I looked at the screen of my phone, and saw a photo of my much younger self. This is the visual experience that originally gave rise to this painting (and also to some dramatic changes in my life). 

The portrait was later reworked for integration into  "Unbroken flowers: Elegy in Colour for Rainer Maria Rilke and Marina Tsvetaeva" (2018). It accompanies these lines:

<...> the strange force that alters us

From living ones to survivors.  

Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas, edges painted. Hanging wire attached. Please contact me if you have any questions.
