This painting outside the famous Wigan Casino portrays a couple walking across Station Road. With his bag in hand ready for the all nighter he’s locked in conversation with a woman as they cross the road. Is he pleading with her to stay or is he expressing his undying love for her, the words from the track by the Sapphires ringing around in his head as he tried to find the right words.
This romantic image by David Barrow evokes an image that’s warm, yet fired with the unknown emptions only a couple know. As all good paintings should, it asks more questions than it answers, leaving viewer wondering for an eternity.
