"Takes a familiar subject and paints it loose and large on a small canvas, creating a play of brilliant hues set off by areas of less intensity—a pleasing composition that really invites the viewer. The attention to drawing and perspective, and varied treatment of edges and areas of emphasis all lend to its success."
