Original artwork description:

A Melancholy Worthy of Weeping" - oil on paper, 19 x 19.

"No one ever asked me to do that before." The phrase alone carries a lamentation, a melancholy worthy of weeping. Many of us have. not been invited to speak of our sorrow, to take off a layer of our skin to expose a still more vulnerable self, let alone find someone with the devotion and patience to scrub us and risk experiencing the wild expression of our grief."
from The Wild Edge of Sorrow by Francis Weller.
