Christine by Stacy Minch

$1,900.00

I've spent hundreds, probably thousands of hours painting nudes from life for skill development. Most of these attempts turn out to be just studies, but occasionally there is a pose that captures an emotional tenor that I can connect to an a very personal level. The mystery of this pose spoke to me when I chose it, and continues to hold my attention--the vulnerability of exposure, the attempt to maintain anonymity, the confident, yet guarded stature... although this painting is not a self portrait, it almost feels like it could be. Oil on Dibond. 30x22 in.
