“Nostalgia” is an exquisite portrayal of introspection, inspired by the powerful act of
reminiscing on the past and those we have lost who shaped our journey and led us to our present selves.

In this evocative portrait painting, a young woman gazes into the distance with a soft stare that seems to pierce through time and memory. Her blank expression indicates that her mind is elsewhere, not in the present moment. Carol Fetty’s masterful use of color is on full display in “Nostalgia”. This painting has a strong foundation of realism but adds a touch of whimsey and symbolism with the bursts of deep red in the young woman’s hair- a metaphorical representation of the memories we carry with us
through our lives and how they dramatically color our present and future. This unexpected infusion of color adds an element of mystery to the portrait, inviting the viewer to explore the layers of meaning behind each brush stroke and delve into their own memories.

This powerful painting stands as a reminder of the enduring influence of the past on our
present selves. In any space, “Nostalgia” will remind viewers of the strength and significance of our memories and the people we have known that led us to where we are today. We may have lost them, but we still hold space to honor them by remembering their enduring influence.
