was painted from life. The subject: my friend Mo. We ran into each other last week for the first time in months...we are both busy, busy artists. This is a prime example of commitment, I think...when your love for the subject reveals itself in your strokes. I have always loved this work...the symmetry of the pose supports the theme, I think. Only the hands break the concentration, with the right pinkie finger lifted revealing a sense of motion, of life.
Quite frankly, I am surprised by this work, its patterns, its feel. The muse must have been on my shoulder during this one.
