    It started with a desire to make something with a dystopian/futuristic vibe while not being completely obvious about it. I wanted to create some sort of toxic world where you have to wear a gas mask to even go outside. It may not be obvious that this place has environmental dangers...but the girl can feel her throat tighten without the mask. She can feel the sun burn within seconds if the umbrella is lowered. She is a bit rebellious and naive and doesn't like to cover her entire body even though she knows the dangers. The outside world is potentially deadly...but it makes her feel alive.

    Beautifully rendered and interesting. The painting makes me stop and really look at all the choices the artist made. Quite a beauty of a piece.

    La Matin- The Salmagundi Club

    Love the atmosphere of this painting! Everything about it is stunning!

    Feel like I've been here before!

    Loose strokes so well placed, a huge range of values, and the illusion of light sweeping in across the tables creates a powerful effect -- that I know this room and I've been here before!
