vignette-ALLOS MARKAR *

Passion buried like a stone
When Alma left Oskar alone;
Their anagram she was to unpick
Leaving him bereft,lovesick..alack
His studio & life,painted..black on black

*anagram of their Christian names & title to Oskar's famous poem he dedicated to his love 
Alma Mahler.

This is a great Ekphrasis, Brian. The portrait of Alma Myer is lovely, soft ad light especially compared o the others I viewed. I was wowed by the double portrait that he painted with his fingertips and I like the thought of painting what lies behind the person face as we are not still lifes. Very interesting artist! Thank you for your kind thoughts! Love, Robin
