I carved and painted this piece a few years ago after visiting a friend from South Dakota in Paris–his adopted home. It is too large to show the whole painting. I carved and painted this on a door I found at a salvage yard. I was so dumbstruck by the chicness of the women in Paris, they seemed to look so good in everything they wore. This piece exhibits some of the awkwardness I feel when trying to replicate something that isn’t my own look. I always look s if I am simply trying too hard. I think following the fashion advice of Leonardo would be helpful. Here’s to developing your style.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
—Leonardo da Vinci
