Character

This is my personal favourite of my wife's paintings. It dates back a few years, and has been hanging since then in my study - I am watching it as I am typing this post. It is a wonderful example of the strong colours that mark her Shanghai Expressionism period, with some cubist overtones. I love how the figure is shown in the transition from chaos (left) to peace (right).
