The first modestly large, layered-with-subtext, multi-figure painting was completed in the new studio on March 9th, 2012. I am very pleased. Finally.
How do I know it is finished? I can’t stopy admiring it without thinking that absolutely nothing needs adjustment. So many beautiful moments: the mysterious shadows, the other-worldly mirror, the red shape after-thought, the 5 brush stroke hand, the pensive gaze, and, of course, the detail (seen in person in February in the Capitoline museums).
