Is that your work top left, Matthew, or is it something associated with the gallery? I had no idea you were interested in that sort of subject/style.

Congratulations on your show. I'm sure it will be a great success.

Thank you Andre! The top left painting is indeed mine; it's something I've been working on on and off since 1993. In a way, my main interest is in figurative works from imagination, and my plein air and life drawing are in service of doing that more convincingly. However, I've also gotten more and more drawn into to working from life for its own sake. The painting of the three women has many layers on it, as I kept learning new stuff and repainting areas. The show is giving me a deadline to finally make an end and move on to a new project.
