Taking a bit of a break from working on one of my many books in progress to finally finish this painting. Inspired by “Beat” picture seen here:;

This could be my favorite painting to date. It was a challenge to get the light and dark right, but I sure enjoyed the challenge. Also, I had a hell of a time trying to lock in the foreshortening of the white wall. In the end I just improvised.

Acrylic on canvas.
