"Rest", 2015, acrylic on fiberboard, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm).
One of a series of monochrome images focusing on the model's hands and posture to communicate an emotional state. Color is limited to one dark color (in this case a mixture of chromium oxide green, burnt umber, and Payne's gray) and one white, and only one brush is used throughout (in this case a 7mm round synthetic bristle brush.)

tribute to turner-rubbed the paper vigorously to mix the pigments-like the result
Like one who, that on a lonely road,
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turn'd round, walks on,
And turns no more his head,
Because he knows a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.
