Mannequin - XVII; Mystic Charm



Mystic Charm, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches

"Within a composite of influences the mystic charm of art is born. It comes into being in the abstract interval between a thought and a reality and no one, not even the artist, can remeasure the influence that caused it." - Edgar A. Payne (1883 - 1947) in Composition of Outdoor Painting

I love them all, drawings, ... all. That line separating the colour, then the meld at the foot is a delight. My favourite of all is Tinged and Altered - and I like the photo of the setup too.

Thank you, Olga - and welcome.

These mannequins are satisfying a recent urge of mine to work with the figure while staying true to the still life genre. I'm very glad you like them - and took the time to let me know. Thank you, again.
