oil on masonite
I'm sorry - I know the title is a bit unoriginal - but really, it's that rich, purple overcoat that is the best feature of this new painting. And you think you know purple until you paint it. The image does not quite capture the vivid colors nor the slight changes from blue-purples to red-purples to brown-purples. I really worked at it. The room is made of shapes and tones that compliment that purple - with less emphasis on the art in the gallery and more on the figure.
