A beautifully poised subject to paint - from the lobby bench in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Interesting subject in this one. I noticed that the added detail in the wall to the right of the figure perhaps conflicts a little with its need to evoke a sense of depth. Has a funny mirror-like relationship between the subject and beholder.

I've been following your blog and have viewed your other art work and must say I am amazed at your detail work on your small pieces. Will have to try a smaller canvas and see what I can do with it.
