"Dignity"

6 x 8"
oil on panel
sold


Believe it or not, I'm planning out a solo show taking place next March and this is one of the studies of one that I will do larger.  The artworks that will be featured are 'extra-large' - examples are (this) Barack Obama 'Hope' by Shepard Fairey, Guernica by Picasso, etc.

Shepard Fairey's large, mixed-media portrait is based on Fairey's Barack Obama 'Hope' poster, which came to represent Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.  Fairey created the large portrait after Obama won the election and the Smithsonian Institution acquired it for its National Portrait Gallery.

I hope you've enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.

I've been painting studies all week including this new piece I finished this evening.  A woman viewing a painting in the Art Institute of Chicago - one that always makes me smile - Henri Matisse's Daisies.
