I would aver that Willem de Kooning was probably the painter who gave us the female portraits most open to the imagination (behind the limited colors he used in every such female-inhabited canvas). Therefore I thought I might draw studies placing such a figure in a place setting as confused and marketplace-esque as the Manila International Airport (now carrying the nickname "Ninoy") under a narrative time just as confused. In one such study above, I used simply black and silver graphite and military-olive green oil spots.
