to see a larger version.
Done in 1999, I think. I made this as an experiment: I wanted
to see if a painting much larger than life (the
original is 2' x 2') would look especially sharp when reproduced.
I was kicking myself
while I was working on it, because it ended up taking so long to
paint that large. I had to spend several weeks
looking at a boring, awkward still life I set up in 10 minutes.
(No, it's not from a photograph. I deliberately
made distant bits blurry to give an impression of depth.)
