Telling a story using vintage advertising can be challenging. Taking little snippets from different sources starts to tell the story of these couples. As the painting evolved, the narrative began to develop. The couple whispering together in the corner is the anchor of the story, while the man standing and distant woman looking creates a sense of yearning and disconnection. Yet the graphic comic in the top left gives the piece lightness. There is love in the air. Words and kisses are shared. This image takes us into another place where we can imagine our own romantic lives.
