"The World Recedes" - an oil painting that transcends time and space, capturing a moment of profound contemplation and quietude within a picturesque European setting. In this masterful work of art, the viewer is transported to a bygone era, where history, emotion, and the essence of a woman's life converge on a grey stone staircase.
At the forefront of the canvas sits a woman, poised on the stone steps, her gaze fixated upon a letter she holds delicately in her hands. Clad in an ornate black velvet and lace dress, reminiscent of the opulent fashion of the 1800s, she is a vision of timeless elegance. Her attire is adorned with intricate details, and she wears a necklace of strands of silver that drape gracefully around her neck, accentuating her grace and refinement. On her forefinger, a ring gleams, a subtle but enigmatic choice that hints at her character's depth.
With long, flowing locks of dark red hair tied back her shoulders, she possesses an air of both mystery and allure. Her countenance is the epitome of serenity, and her lips curl into a tranquil smile as she reads the contents of the letter. It's as though the words contained within have granted her a moment of quiet contentment, a brief respite from the world's tumultuous demands.
Seated on the step below her is a black and white cat, its presence a symbol of quiet companionship. The feline observes its mistress with a calm and unwavering gaze, mirroring the tranquil atmosphere of the scene.
Beyond the woman, a stone house stands proudly with a light brown wooden door, evoking a sense of timeless European architecture. The window of the house is adorned with intricate wrought iron floral designs, an elegant frame for the captivating reflection within. A reflection in the glass glimpses a picturesque landscape, a mountain and river scene, as though the world outside has been painted anew through the lens of this contemplative moment.
"The World Recedes" invites the viewer to step into the past and experience the stillness of this captivating tableau, where the woman, her letter, and her enigmatic smile serve as a bridge between centuries, reminding us that the emotions and moments captured in art are eternally relevant and profoundly human.

I will let you in on the story behind the cat. Her name is Maggie. She was adopted by my kind brother, Mark Perna. Maggie is a rascal and gets into everything. She even got into my painting!

This superlative painting puts me in mind of the old European master's works. The little cat adds a dimension and I love the story behind it. I am going to order a canvas print.
