Henry Moore Sculpture garden, “Two Reclining Figures”, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery, Kansas City, Missouri. Painting number 2 under the tutelage of Anne Garney. I had scouted out the area ahead of time and came up with this composition. I liked the way the path wound back, and the distant trees coming back up the hill.
A large group of elementary school children with their teachers came by with cameras and note pads, asking all sorts of questions about me, and my painting. I posed with a few of them as I learned of the grand masters from some who were well read on the subject.
