I have created two entries points into the picture, one emotional, in the manner of the man facing the viewer. This smiling face and downward gaze and open body invite the viewer in. Another opening is a figurative opening between the muscle man's back and the drummer. Yes, the female figure (which I call Eve, as she walks away repentant cast out of eden) fills the space but not before allowing an entrance into the pictorial space.
By the way, if you are wondering what the swirlies are at the top...over the last three days a humming bird has flown into my studio, doing a few loops and turns and then gratefully exiting through the window that I open for it. At first I was terrified by its buglike buziness and nosedives, but now I look forward to the visits. I record its trajectories in the space above. I love that.
