Figure on Canvas (2009)
acrylic on canvas panel
11" x 14"
One in an ongoing series of nudes and semi-nudes. Total painting time was around 10 hours.
There's also an early comp of this painting you can view.
This painting just popped into my head this way, the image of a figure feeling her way around the edges of the canvas, as if trying to understand the limits of her space. I really like the graphic quality of an image like this. There's just something very striking about how it makes you aware of the painting as a painting.
