"Down Stairs"

8 x 8"

oil on masonite


This was really a painting I did for me. One of those 'can I pull this off?' paintings. I loosened up, concentrating on the warm & cool greys and getting the perspective right. The woman is somewhat of a ghostly figure, less defined - half of her dark and half of her lit up from the daylight pouring down the marble stairs. From the center lobby in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Karin, This has great perspective and color. The light is so expressive. You get a gold star!

Very nicely done as always, but this one really grabs me.
