Moments of disparity (Gary Baughan)

The gallery depicts sadness in it's various forms. For some, it is an obvious expression, but for others, it can be a subtle hint. Some mask their sadness through beauty in order to appear as though nothing is wrong. Most of the following works are done in an impressionist style, using the larger brush strokes to mask away some of the detail and leave the viewer to ponder why the subject is depicted in the way they are.
