"Bent Out of Shape"

6 x 6"

oil on masonite


Picking up where I left off - I spent the next three or so hours in the Legion of Honor Museum, a somewhat small collection, but so worth it. This gentleman was admiring a modern sculpture, I wish I knew the artist but all I know is the Picasso in the background. I enjoy these figurative paintings both for the art and I get to play with the texture and folds and colors of clothing on a person. I'm always interested in getting that weight of the coat or flow of the skirt. I also like the relationship of the man with the bent and rigid form of the sculpture.
