This is a reposting of an earlier painting done in 2007. It was sold in the gallery rather than online. Some paintings are just difficult to see the subtleties of color and texture online. This was one of those paintings. It sold almost immediately when it was hung in the gallery even though it had been online for several years. This tells me that both kinds of exposure can be needed for the artists work. The luminous quality of the computer screen can show some things to advantage with the use of additive colors of light, while some tones and textures can be diminished that way and I’ve found it’s not always easy to predict which way will be best.
Even though the “detail view” statistics were good on this painting online it never really connected in the same way it did in a gallery. Part of that may have been the framing in the gallery, but I suspect it was the light in the gallery and on computer that made the difference.
