Rugs & Icons

Rugs & Icons (oil on canvas, 40 x 40 cms)

Working on the Shops & Stalls series gave me a greater insight into what it was I wanted from this subject so, although Rugs & Icons was the first of its type, I found I wanted to make some alterations to draw it into closer alignment with its children.

As a consequence, I've brightened up the colours of some of the rugs and taken down the colour of the walls round the shop. The blind has been made more substantial. I think now I'd be happier to show this with the later additions to the series.

Thanks, April, glad you approve.

I approve heartily. Now I see why your other one wanted the seller: because it worked so well in this one. And in white, no less.

Now you have me studying to see why the figure works so well here. One may be that she's in the sweet spot (although squarely formatted) and another is that there are whites tied in. As far as the subject goes, the intrigue is ever -present.
