Throwback Thursday - Southwest Art Magazine 21 Under 31 List Painting - 2001

For Throwback Thursday, here is a painting of my niece from almost twenty years ago. 

At the time, I was experimenting with dramatic chiaroscuro in paintings of figures and portraits. I've always been interested in using strong value contrasts to create a design pattern that makes a painting more than a depiction of the subject matter. 

This painting was featured in Southwest Art Magazine's annual "21 Under 31" list in 2001. You can read the article here:

"Don't Step In the Light" • Oil on Canvas • 24"x30" • Private Collection
