What an Attitude (#659)
5" x 5" unframed
Oil on Gessobord
This painting reminds me of some of the German Expressionist paintings of the 20th century. The lines are bold, the hues are dark, and the attitude is obvious. I didn't intend to create such a painting--it just appeared. But isn't that what I say about so much of my work? I particularly like some of the bold brush marks on the face--they add so much more character to her. Framed in a contemporary black frame which fits in well with any other contemporary piece of art. Just the right piece for a small niche in the bookcase or above a table with favorite objets d'arte.
