Le Petit Mort
Murals, Custom Paint Work, Framed Art Work
The title, "Le Petit Mort" means a little death.
This is a portrait of the first woman tried and convicted
for a crime of passion.
Her name was Agnes Dempster, and she shot a
girl in the head, whom she believed stole her fiancee.
This particular painting is one in a series, painted with
a different effect, to make it look like she was encased in
concrete, with the others following the seasons, with fire, ice
and verdigris. I particularly like the stone effect, as her
fiancee was a stone mason, and I think it adds a personal
meaning. I believe all art should contain something meaningful
and secret to its owner, something special in each piece.
