"Cocktails, Jardines Nine"

Summer of 2005

"Cocktails, Jardines, Nine" was created from dwelling on the moment of insecure hesitation and reservation individuals can face when two spirits bond, but the inertia of past loss residing in the memory of one or both derails natural action on the obvious powerful and unique opportunity in the two human lives.

It is about so much more than shallow attraction, but more in line with the notion of the assasination or suicide of soulmates because of anxiety.

Before finishing this painting the engagement between the painting was so intense that the canvas required five patches from rips and tears.

"Cocktails, Jardines, Nine" was the first limited edition Giclee created of McQuitty's work.
