My Italian sketchbook supplied the drawing for this piece. I called it Departure lounge as the figures are together in a space and yet still unconnected. Figure relationships are endlessly interesting as compositions and this one embodies a sort of group self consciousness that you experience in these situations.
Now complete it awaits a frame and a place in the October 6 show. This is one of twelve canvases I am working on in rotation, a method that works well for me as I work wet over dry and the drying time gives me a fresh view of the work when I return to it.
