Fortuna – oil on canvas

When in disgrace with Fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state ... — Sonnet 29. Shakespeare

I painted this in 2006 for a friend of mine. It was inspired by a trip to Cambodia and the wondrous Ankor Wat. I highly recommend going there, its so beautiful and tranquil.

The little bit of Shakespeare was recited to me by my friend Colin when I was having a really bad time with people who I thought were my friends, I felt so alone- it was so apt, that I decided to add it to my painting.
