I noticed the frame I had this piece in needed a bit of maintenance so removed it for some renovation. I began painting in January of 1980. I can tell you this because it came as a response to the emotional turmoil brought about by the end of a four-year relationship. I guess you could say I came to painting as a means of therapy, something to keep my mind occupied. This painting was completed in October of 1982 so I had been painting less than two years. This is an 18 by 24 inch acrylic painting on gallery-wrapped canvas and an early example of the painting side of Original Jones Art in that ever stimulating city, Austin, Texas.
