I really like the pose and rendering of this figure
The composition of the lower 3/4 of the piece works for me
with the field of background as large as it is with the bold stripes, I feel it takes away from the inward movement of the subject
perhaps that was your purpose?

I feel the space above makes one pause
to the space where he once was
he will sit up again soon
a space where a video would start
before he was to dance...

a majestic sculptural treatment on the dancer;
again the bkgnd detracts, I suppose it is related
to your sense of separation of figure and ground as opposed to a sense of unity of everything in the painting. a different granularity and style makes it verge into pop art.

good depth in the shadow

the background and the figure
are the painting
i know it sounds stupid to say
but they are
and this is a good painting
very good IMHO

Zotma and Jerry, I wanted the background very still and linear in contrast with the Dancers "movement". I also wanted it textured and weathered. I re-painted it again and again!
I like Ginia's idea..he has room to spring up:)
Thanks Julia, Ceu, dornberg, Jan-Michael and Impulse for your comments.
fmoore, painting is my only source of income, so I never think I sell enough
No I don't have an edition of prints at the moment.
Thanks to all,
