The Artist Returns

Absinthe

 

Candice unlocks the door to her new home and rushes to the cellar – soon to be her studio.

She was drawn to it and cannot wait to begin its transformation. Eagerly she opens a crate left behind by the previous owner. Sepia photos wrapped in a 100-year-old newspaper fall out.

Excitedly she examines each one in turn.

The backdrop clearly is the cellar where she now stands.

In the foreground a slim girl poses for a portrait.

Only the model is seen in the first few photos.

The next one captures the smiling artist. She gasps, 'its me!’
