This is a great painting!  I don't see it as sad, my first thought was that Helen was sitting down to rest her weary legs after a full day of cake making.  Can't wait to see the companion picture.

The companion piece has elephants, umbrellas and a flooded room........it will probably be some time before I can get back to work on it, but I'll post it when I'm done.

Ever since your clown painting, I have been such a huge fan of yours. I absolutely love this painting, especially knowing the story behind it. You have such a wonderful way with color and brushstrokes. This is just gorgeous.

The first person I thought of when I saw this painting was my aunt, and it just made me tear up. This painting is delightful and poignant all at once -- beautiful work!
