Looking Away
(©1994 John Akin, Jr.)

(Oil on Arches paper.) This was one of those few paintings that seemed to work really well after the initial session (i.e., I didn't go back and rework it...). I didn't even take off the masking tape frame around the edges because it would have affected the shape at the bottom of the painting (much to the chagrin of art conservators who will have to deal with decaying masking tape in a hundred years when my paintings are selling for $20 million... Hee hee...)
