"Back Support"

6 x 8"

I'm on my 10th painting for a grouping in a small solo show opening at the end of February - with the same young woman and the same Flemish painting you see on the post below.  The last piece I finished took d-a-y-s.  It includes one of the most fabulous paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but it was a doozie.  

I took a break today and loosened up with a new study of this young man resting his back next to a Monet in the French Impressionism gallery in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.

The pensive look on his face is perfect. Well done

Such a clever idea this theme of yours, and so neatly done: the way you combine the casual with the formal.

Love it!
