These are portraits of Becca’s partner, and in his right eye in my version of him there is a tiny portrait of Becca, which the detail image shows. Similarly, there’s a tiny portrait of Taous’ mother on the broach at her throat in this painting that I talk about more in this vlog. I once painted a small portrait of my partner on his hat and that work is featured towards the end of this blog post.
