"May is an interpretive portrait depicting a dear friend of mine. The personality of the subject inspired the mood and setting of this work. The softness of the dogwood blooms in early spring speak of the gentle spirit of the woman depicted. This is an exemplar of my work, which often depicts close friends and family portrayed as mythic women, inspired by legends and 19th century romantic and pre-Raphaelite paintings.” – ADRIENNE STEIN
