Jilted Lady — Love Me Don't Leave Me Collection

Jilted Lady | Original

Size: 11 x 14"

It is no secret that I have a love affair with saving historic buildings. I moved to St. Louis knowing that one of the biggest problems confronting this city is abandoned homes and buildings — a whopping 25,000 properties are considered vacant and abandoned. As I drive around the city, it breaks my heart to see crumbling and discarded buildings. However, their beauty and form can still be seen behind their mask of despair.

I decided to shine the light on the plight of these forgotten relics with my “Love Me Don’t Leave Me" series. My aim is to show their haunting beauty and a give a tiny glimpse of some of the stories that still might hide within their walls.

The first piece in my series is entitled, “Jilted Lady.” Look closely and you will see why. I also wanted to show my fascination with how abandoned buildings such as this tend to attract new growth and life, such as the wild flowers and the mating doves in the broken window.

This is a mixed media piece. I started with a black and white photo that I took, then added four different artistic mediums to create the exact effect I wanted, including ink pen, watercolor, acrylic paint and colored pencil.
