MY COMMENTS:

oil & charcoal on canvas

As a painter, it's not surprising that one of my favorite activities is watching. I find people and the world around me endlessly fascinating. This piece tries to reflect the feeling of contentment that can come from watching to the point where you become one with the subject. It is also plays with the idea of who the watcher really is - the woman in the painting, the artist, the viewer of the painting, or all of the above. While we are watching, who is watching us?


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
None really...

Stained glass simplicity. It only lacks the outline on the head too.

rich color - the distribution of weight, texture, color and line are finely evocative of exactly the sentiment you expressed.

like the color and the flatline .. wonder why you didn't flatline the head and tail holder to keep in sync with the rest of the piece .. I think it would sit better but that's only opinion ..

It's lovely & I agree with all above on lining the head.
