I think this is my favorite of my recent paintings.  I’d love to paint this loose all the time — or looser even.  I don’t know why it doesn’t always seem possible.  Constitutionally predisposed to tightness, I fear…

Real painters understand with a brush in their hand.

  • You should be an entertainment writer too. ;) Before I read the ‘unfinished’ statement I was thinking it’s ‘Under stated’ not a criticism just an option on style. I wondered if painting facial detail intimidated you ? Yet I believe you may have intended to add facial expression, although having none is a statement in itself. The tonal value overall is excellent and it almost reminds me of a more relaxed David Hockney. More fun, freer and there was me thinking the figure was wearing a baseball cap backwards. Well it was amusing to hear scholars debate your scarf. Too funny.
