This originally was done from a series of sketches I had made for "The Lonely Side of the Lake". I liked the profile of the figure of the woman. I also wanted to work with some red. It looked like a pool and the rest of the figures seemed to fall into place in the composition. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Glenn

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.
