When I started painting again in 2019 and posting my work, a former coworker and Facebook friend took an interest. She would comment on nearly everything, and Deception was the painting she said “got her”.

I had planned to give her a print as soon as I had them made, but sadly she passed away before I got the chance. I named it Deception when I finished it in 2020 (more about life at the time than the imagery), but it’s really Josie’s painting.
