additional information about my giclée prints
This piece came about as a result of being contacted by a fan of my work who expressed an interest in being captured in one of my pastels. While most of the men in my works are fantasy creations, I thought he had a great look and would be fun to create an illustration around. His story adds a bit of subtext to the afterglow theme. After being outed to his family by his brother, he was subsequently disowned. Though a traumatic experience rather than a pleasant one, the process of coming out does provide a sense of relief and inner peace. No more hiding and denying who you are, living in fear of exposure.
