Queen Of Diamonds

Original 30" x 40" Acrylic Painting
Queen Of Diamonds

"This painting was painted while my wife was in the hospital for several weeks. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the outcome was not going to be good and after five weeks, she unexpectedly passed away. It was the only painting I worked on during this time. I have so much emotion about it, because there were times I should have been with her that I was working on it. I was painting it against a deadline for a "Call for Art" for the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati. I eventually withdrew the work for consideration in light of the subsequent events.

In any case, in the times she was conscious, my wife would ask "How's the painting coming?" The day I completed it was the one day I did not visit her, as she had actually left the hospital and was recovering in a rehab canter, undergoing physical therapy for her broken hip. The next day, things took a turn for the worse, and she had to return to the hospital. 12 days later she was gone.

I believe this will one of the more significant paintings in my career. Tragedy seems to accompany artists, and this is the biggest tragedy of my life. When I am gone, the painting of this work and the circumstances that surround it will play a significant part in my biography." --Randal Huiskens
