The "O" Painting, seated woman
This is called the "O" painting. It's a painting of the seated figure from a found advertisement for American Apparel. I went to the Metropolitan Museum one afternoon. Primarily to see the first painting Michael Angelo's made. It was just put on display. I looked at the De Kooning they have hanging. One of his early seated woman paintings. In yellow, pink, orange and green palette. It was still in my mind when I got back to the studio.
