"This piece was done about the same time I was making a painting titled Davenport," says Glenn. "They're both meant to be sort of light-hearted and explore interesting color relationships. Cleopatra is very much an improvisational piece. I see her kind of bored at some sort of reception, just staring off into the distance and biding her time - something I think a lot of us can relate to."

Glenn Quist is a full-time artist in Elk River, Minnesota, near the Twin Cities metropolitan area. His elongated modernist figures appear in scenes derived from both memory and imagination with a strong emphasis on color and composition. Glenn considers his paintings to be "somewhere between dreams and reality." Opposed to telling stories directly, he prefers to present his work and leave the interpretation to the viewer.
