This is a study for a larger painting that I plan on starting this summer. I was inspired by the artist Ruprecht Von Kaufmann, and Paul Fenniak who made visits to the graduate program I was in. Both artist are highly imaginative and skilled at reinventing the world around them. I've been trying to stretch my legs and get better at inventing forms and narratives that are both interesting and ambiguous. I still have some ways to go, but I've been digging the process!
