This is painting number one from my Thesis Show. The Artist Enters the Studio a 48"x 48" oil painting was painted with the idea similar to the first scene of a hypothetical movie. The scene where a painter walks into his creative space with the intention of telling a story. Similar to Stephen King's Stand By Me or the more recent movie Atonement, but from a perspective of an artist instead of a writer. This painting is based on the space I was painting in at the time mixed with images from a movie based around a painter.
