This is the kind of painting that is like catching sight of an albino deer run off through the woods. I have five daughters and I know your are not supposed to have a favorite but I do. This painting is a favorite. Value is not necessarily determined by square inches covered but rather by its mystical weight and this particular piece is tipping the scale hard towards heaven.
I was in the Detroit Institute looking at two twin paintings by Picasso that were both done in a rich symphony of grays and whites. These two paintings haunted me for months and I believe this unusual diptych is the result.
I always paint with the best quality oil paint I can find. This piece has been painted on baltic birch cradled twin panels secured together with four carpentry screws with a 16th inch thick cardboard spacer.
