Description

I originally painted this piece for a feature film I wrote called "Rat Girl".  This painting is an abstract expressionist rendering of urban alienation. The point of view is through the eyes of a frustrated, lonely painter as he observes equally lonely women walking down the street.  The frenetic, heavy impasto brush-strokes are done in blazing cadmium oranges and yellows, reminiscent of Van Gogh's palette.

This is one of my finest abstracts.
