While I was in Chicago I saw the exhibit “Girodet: Romantic Rebel” at The Art institute of Chicago. The show featured the works of Anne-Louis Girodet de Rousssy-Trioson. Many of the large paintings in the show included reclined figures.


acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

When I created this painting I decided to make an abstraction of a reclined figure. I rendered my abstraction with colors used to promote the show. Imitating Girodet’s work I had a light source illuminating the figure.

  1. This one makes me think of a dried up riverbed through a desert. Cool!

    That's an interesting interpretation. I appreciate the “cool.” That made my day.

    Thank you,
