11 x 14"
oil on canvas
I don't consider this my most "beautiful" figure painting, but I am pleased with many aspects of it, like the painterly/design-ey treatement of chair and the floor/background. In this painting, I tried to make every part of what you see on the canvas as important as everything else. I hope that's coming across. I "brought it all up" together, which is something I was taught to do in college, and something I teach my students now. Another way to say it is "Paint all around the painting." Someone should anthologize the language of art school. It would give linguists a laugh!
