Description of What Happened
I was touring the grounds at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida when I glimpsed an area of broken statues at the edge of the grounds. It was like a statue graveyard. I was intrigued and knew that there was a painting in those old broken pieces. The highlighted figure in the painting spoke to me and the cardinal pair seemed like the perfect narrators for the painting. When I went back later for more photos, the area was closed off and not open to the public. I felt fortunate for my earlier discovery.
This painting was juried into the CPSA2020 International Exhibition.
