This is actually a painting I did last winter. One of the few paintings from my Stripes series I haven't taken the time to really show anyone. I've always liked this painting, but it's one of those paintings I appreciate more after being put away for a while. I thought about this one too much while I was working on it. Now I am able to look at it as a whole, rather than a canvas polluted by a bunch of tiny concerns. I can find flaws, but I can also see where my constant re-evaluation of this painting paid off. This painting has a lot of color and texture relationships I hope to repeat in future paintings. If you ask me, even though the clothing is provocative, the sexiest part of this painting is glow of that red sheet.
