Original Oil Painting Towards Siena
The figure painting of the man
looking away was done probably in the late 1990s. It was not until 2009 that the artist discovered what to do with this painted sketch from a live
modeling session. And another Italy-inspired painting was born!
Said the artist, "While I was creating a landscape inspired by Siena, Italy, it occurred to me that I was probably subliminally influenced by a lot of traditional Italian portraits, including the "Mona Lisa." Except that in this case, I have the subject of the portrait looking away from the viewer and towards the landscape. I wondered if some day after I am long gone, some critic will dig up this painting somewhere and claim that I was making some sort of statement or something. Maybe I should just proclaim right now that I had this very intent and be done with it!"
