The unfinished nature of this painting allows the viewer to finish it.
This is a study from one of the many life drawing sessions I organize. It was painted at the surrealist artist Kurt Seligmanns studio - a renovated barn with huge windows. The light pours in, and bounces all over.
What inspired me here was the warm and cool light on the models back.
Curator's Note: The artist says it best herself: "The unfinished nature of this painting allows the viewer to finish it."
