In the earlier version of this painting, a large potted plant occupied the space to the left of the figure. I loved the woman but the plant crowded her and and even seemed threatening. It took a while for me to realize that I was uncomfortable - as was she. The new setting is peaceful and spacious, giving focus to the figure. As my friend and collector Dan Levine said: the background is the unsung hero.
