This is a painting that I like for its simplicity. There's not much to it, and I probably broke all kinds of rules (like you shouldn't paint things in two's, don't put your focal point in the center, and who knows what else). I think what saves it is the reflection, I consider it an important element in the painting, almost another object. I've always liked this painting, and it actually one a first place prize in a local show back in 2001. I guess simplicity has its place.
