This painting is a story about a romance that took place in a previous life. In the process of painting it, before any figures or objects appeared, the name past life kept coming to me. Then the more the painting developed, I started to see what appears to be a journal. Just as I was about to finish the painting, I had a friend look at it, and they told me they can see the outline of a male figure. The male figure was very dominant in the painting, and as much as I tried to ignore it, it was still there. So I took some gray and outlined the ghostly figure. I believe that the woman who owns the journal in my painting wrote about her secret romance with this man, which I believe was her soul mate. This is a old fashion type of romance, and took place many years ago. The rest of the story is up to you, the interpreter.
