I was thinking about Olympia…but, this is what I came up with

I really wasn’t starting anything—I was actually just tinting my canvas so I could pace up and down until some idea popped into my head….I guess I just eliminated that pacing up and down, staring blankly into space part of my process. It was when my thoughts wandered to poses used throughout history in paintings…like Manet’s Olympia…or that crazy statue in Di Chirrico’s Soothsayer’s Recompense…and then I roughed this in. It’s a work in process.
