The framing of these pieces is an experiment - an expensive experiment. I thought it would be neat to use a floater frame coupled with a high end frame, then to frame the pictures in series. Problem is the expensive framing option jacks the price way up. We'll see if they sell.
In many ways I think like a photographer. The image itself is becoming more and more important to me; the actual application of paint less and less. Blasphemy in some painterly circles.
I choose to paint figures and portraits because I consider them the most difficult subject.
