A senior, an American artist, looking back on his life's development.
At the same time, anticipating his first solo show, and waiting for his wife, Rosetta, to arrive back from America, to join him that evening.
The two timelines meet near the end of the book.
A romance and an artist's story, how could it not be a love story?
We all love a story that shows how a loving pair, meeting obstacles in life, overcome that challenge, and resolve to love each other. But what happens during the "lived happily ever after" part? What are the details, what might the process be, achieving and living that post-crisis life?
This arc, from boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy regains girl, morphs, in this first of three books, in the trilogy Triptych, into that fuller story of life, and love.
