I was influenced by an earlier figure painting of mine with a darker background.

I was looking at one of my earlier figure paintings and I liked the contrast between the body and the dark background and I felt that this painted needed it. Immediately after seeing the photos of this painting with the darker background I liked it more, the higher contrast really pulls out the body.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
