The story behind Carolyn 1

After I broke up with my girlfriend Carolyn I painted her portrait. Whilst we were an item we had gone an created a series of photos to use as the basis. This one, taken at the Yarra Glen cemetery, was an interesting composition and was the first of two portraits I painted of her.

When I showed her the painting she hated it. Same with the second version as well. Oh well.
