This contemporary, female figurative, graphite drawing, nude oil painting, features a woman standing; the red, pink, and flesh colored tones of the body, hands and feet give an illusion of dark shadows, and adds a hint of mystery while gently capturing the profile of her left breast, with back turned. The patterns in the Oriental rug and the cubist shapes of the black and teal background move your eye up around the figure, balanced by the round shape of a brown potted plant with sticks, sitting on the floor. Adams' mark making, and color layering is sustained throughout, allowing for a varied surface, heightened color and visual intrigue. Margins often extend beyond the actual image as the subject drifts outside the given painting space. Painting is unframed on a cradled panel, for a modern way of hanging the art.
