Becca and I did not talk about our paintings as we worked on them, and we certainly never showed them to each other, but the pairs still managed to match up quite nicely, like in this case where Becca’s mother is turned in towards herself. This process of uncoupled diptychs is a bit like what happened with this portrait.
