"A Tunic and a Tuna"

8 x 10"
oil on masonite

This scene is from the American Art Wing in the Art Institute - a gallery that has a bit more dimmed lighting overall, and strong spotlighting on the art and it's personal space. It does make for a striking visual, especially accenting the woman's grey hair and the patterns on her long blouse. I really like the overall feel of this piece.

The word 'quintessential' always comes to mind when I view your 'viewers'. This person is particularly 'the essence of'.
Your talent is brilliant.
