This image is a bridge from the work of layered and collaged paintings and drawings I had been working on prior to resuming work with oil paint. It began with an intense desire to paint the coppery folds in the woman's skirt. Once I had the space, it seemed that the figure's gaze implied others with other focal points, and an ambiguous narrative.
