Title or Location: Mon Dieu
This painting was produced in 1996. I always have sung Edith Piaf songs and my inspiration came from her song titled Mon Dieu where she asks God to keep her lover for a little longer before calling him back home. Her expression on this painting could be one she had when making this heartfelt request.
