A portrait of my wife holding her brushes and canvas. She's becoming an artist. Her first paintings went up on our wall last week. She is also carrying an image of her nephew who lives in China and who she hasn't seen in six years. They once were close but time and distance has interfered. Immigration is hard on people. They are forced to inhabit two or more lives while the rest of us are living one. She is painting his image now. I don't know if this will bring them closer...

Jos Letschert Jared, an intense and very interesting photo, build up with different techniques, with an amazing depth and a meaningful composition of two people with deep feelings to each other. Life choices, yes, indeed, but very oft choices are no real decisions, more or less the unexpected way of a lifeline. It must be a wonderful gift that the both of you, your wife and you, have the same interest to create art with distinguished media. It is a basis for communication and understanding, for cooperation and further development. My wife and I are in the same enriching circumstances and we enjoy every part of it. Congratulations with your new artwork. It is always a pleasure and a privilege to observe it. Thanks for sharing.

Alexander Kolesnik The image of a woman is amazing in every detail. Better to be torn between two lives than to stay in the comfort of half-life. Accustomed to the solitude of dawn to walk the gray cat on the Internet...

Oleg Ferstein Time and distance unavoidably detect the speed. Life seems like always is speeding up when passing through the times of grief, parting or separation, long winters or just melancholy moods. It's speeding up leaving many extraordinary moments unnoticed and neglected. I take this absolutely marvelous portrait like a great dedication of the artist to those moments! To an ability of hearing, contemplating, being in love and the most important - an ability to be present at this very moment! Bravo, Jared!
