I am happily remarried since 2012, but was widowed in 2008. There is nothing like the grief one experiences after a life partner passes away. When I lost my first husband, I searched for books and articles addressing this particular loss - I was looking for comfort from others who'd had that experience. There wasn't much. I meet with widows and widowers of all ages, gay and straight, having been in legal marriages or simply committed partnerships, have a conversation, and make a portrait. This process is emotionally satisfying for me, and my sitters as well, as they tell me. My intention is to share their stories with others who might find some comfort and connection.
