“Oh Alex, it’s beautiful,” Elenora whispered.
They were lying in bed, the painting adorning the wall at the end of it. The approaching shadows of night enhanced it.
Four year old Angel was asleep in her bed and three month old Josef in his crib.
Alex sighed in perfect contentment.
“There is so much to see, experience, enjoy and capture, I don’t want to waste a single moment. All I can do is try to reproduce it on canvas, but it takes so much time.”
He sat up in bed.
“I have an idea rolling around in my head, albeit a bit fuzzy. A guy named George is working on something which may have a resounding effect on the art world, so I’m going to have a chat with him later this week”.
Jean and Andrew Eastman were settling into their new home and came across a selection of paintings in the attic.
One showed a beautiful woman with her ‘beau’ standing behind her. It was dated April 12th 1874.
In another, the same couple were smiling at each other on their wedding day in 1876.
Four years later, another painting depicted them as proud parents to a baby girl.
The last, dated 1884 was a family portrait of them with their daughter and newborn son.
“Do you know them?” Jean asked.
“I don’t think so, but this is familiar……….”
He held up a small picture, faded with age, of a beach scene.
“I’ve seen an original painting of this, ” he said. “Old Man George had it hanging in his library for years.”
I have extremely loosely ‘connected’ this final piece to the first roll of film developed by George Eastman in 1884. My work is entirely fictitious and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.
