Oil on canvas, 30" x 40".

Last summer in Austin, from my memory and imagination.

  3. Nice work Jean. Me gusta de tu obra, especialmente, los rojos y azules y la contundència que das a los desnudos.
    Felicidades

  5. Now, you see, this just totally has a different type of energy-- more languid, more subdued. What do you think?

  6. Margaret, the painting's actually pretty lively and bright in person.

    The photo is subdued. I'll try to photograph again tomorrow and see if I can get a truer color match up.

  7. I opened this version in another tab so I could compare the two versions and was wondering if you had darkened this one overall. I like this painting so very much and I'll be interested to see tomorrow's photo.

  8. Maybe the colors aren't true here, but I like them. Interesting blend of vitality and calm. For me, there's ambiguity in the foreground--shoreline rocks? or human female, from rear, right buttock sloping down to right calf?

    Thanks, Paula.

    Thanks, Banjo. And if you really want to go cross-eyed, take another look at the horizon, mountain-scape. Also ambiguous.
