| Artist's Notes
Studio Visit There are two characters in my drawing Studio Visit. One is a woman seated beside a table, by the window on the left. I liked the table, I liked a small woman sitting by a table. But in my painting Studio Visit I eliminated this figure. I had to purify the painting so that the wall turns and disappears behind a vertical white line.
