Art Meets Art Portrait For A Play

By Bill Kelly

Curtains of the show, the innocents, finally opened highlighting some good local stage actors. And at the set of this show hangs a picture, the subject of countless strange stories and tales. And the long time owner of this picture is someone who maintains anonymity. For some strange reason, the owner was said to have bought this portrait as she was speeding down the road and she stopped to buy it suddenly.

As she waited for the store attendant to hand it to her, she wondered how in the world could she afford it. It was school time soon and she realized that she needed to purchase clothes, books and supplies for the kids. So she thought to herself first that she will tell the clerk that while it was a beautiful portrait, she just can’t afford to purchase it. But before the attendant could move and return the portrait back in place, the lady, in a very loud voice, said that she was dying to have that portrait and she will get it no matter what happens.

A problem presented itself for her as she tried to figure how she would explain to her husband her compulsion at buying the photo, and after paying for it she hurried out of the antique store, still not being able to explain to herself how she got it even as she could not even afford it and neither had a need for it. This oil painting was of a Russian wolfhound known as a Borzoi, done between the late 1800′s or perhaps the early 1900′s. It was indeed an extremely lovely picture but then for those whose eyes are trained to be familiar with the appearance of the Borzoi, he will have to ask why it was done in such a way that the artist painted it in a straight on manner, with its head and shoulders appearing only. But as you look at the chest and shoulders, you will see it’s not proportional.

This makes the fact that she bought the picture even more strange as she was very familiar with the breed and knew what a Borzoi should look like. That night, her husband arrived and found the picture hung against their wall but then instead of blowing up since his wife overspent for that painting instead of buying the needs of their children first, she was surprised that he felt exactly what she gad felt too when she first saw it.

It was the subject of so many photographers and throughout all the pictures taken by both amateurs and experts, no two photographs ever came out to be similar. There are occasions when the dog portrait would show a spectral face on its right side, then at some times it would look flat then 3 dimensional in others, but at most times, whether the portrait would appear as either black and white or in full color, strange lights would seem to emanate from it.

There was a time that the portrait owners were debating whether or not an entity came with the picture, the man replied that ‘I think that we are all just being too imaginative and everything is just caused by some sorts of light reflections for there is nothing mysterious or strange about this wolfhound painting. A large ceramic plate that was on the wall suddenly fell without breaking, not even a crack in sight, and this was a mystery indeed.

The owners were very pleased to loan this painting to the Innocents production, after the producer director approached them upon learning that there was something supernatural about this masterpiece, thinking that it would fit his play well as it was a story of the supernatural. They explained that they yearned to know who it is that moved into the house on the day they bought the portrait and they thought too that maybe letting this get used in a production such as the Innocents can enable them to discover what they wanted to learn. This their hope, at least.
