I recently had a buyer for this painting but it wasn’t quite done. You see it’s missing the figure, so I wasn’t ready to sell it. The buyer loved it as is. Then I saw it very clearly. The figure was the viewer looking at the scene. I suppose that is how it is with all art, the viewer is part of it, but I have never felt it so much before. My art doesn’t feel finished without a person; art can not be complete without a viewer.
