Hi David, this is a great painting, I love the blue on top of the grey. Although this is a very good painting I think the background could make a great abstract piece. Has anyone told you you have the touch of Manet?

David Lloyd said… flatter me! But it does follow, as I consider Manet to be one of my greatest influences. While I long for the abilities of Sargent, I identify more with Manet, the less perfect of the two.

Very astute, too, that you mention the abstract background...I consider myself, at root, to be an abstract painter who just happens to paint things one can recognize.

Thanks again, Luis.
