Oh, she burned.  Expressions stick around because generally they offer some sound advice.  One of my favorites, and a reoccurring theme of late is “Don’t burn bridges.”  This phrase loosely means when relationship ends, it is wise to not end it in a sour way or “burn a bridge.”

I grew up in New Jersey, a mere 20 minutes from New York City, land of bridges and tunnels.  As a nod to this, I chose to use the Hell’s Gate Bridge that crosses the East River as my reference for this painting.  Enjoy!
