Show Guide


This is another Flying Moleskins contribution for that very talented artist, Liz Holm. I worked from a photo that I took in Baden Baden, Germany at the Museum Frieder Burda. We visited the Durer, Tizian, Velazquez exhibit and really enjoyed seeing a few paintings from these famous artists up close. I was quite taken with this exhibit room, which was filled with huge tapestries and had a great floor.

  1. The whole piece is perfect.
    The light reflecting under the bench is even more perfect.

    The suggestion of the textures is fantastic.

    lovely, Vern

  3. You did such a great textured wood floor, it really make the whole piece flow so nicely. I just love how you captured in your painting their casual conversation. Wonderful friendship piece for Liz

  9. Your figures look very natural, loose and relaxed. It has a pleasant atmosphere by the way both of them are sitting on a bench facing one another. Nice piece Vern.
