The "Givenchy Painting" in Progress
The painting is mounted on the wall. I use wood framing fragments to set the painting into a display mode. It gives me an idea what the work would look like if it was framed. It also provides for a sense of a bounder within the picture plane. It's just one of my tools for composition and design. I also like to look at the painting in a mirror when I am working on it. It reverses everything. Shows the short comings, especially with figurative work.
