Borin Van Loon: Panther painting 4
Panther (oil on board)

It's an odd link, but this piece goes right back to an early painting: Jean Harlow (was it Dorothy Parker who said that Harlow was spelt with a silent 't'?) in it's design approach. I have always liked the idea of the isolation of rich detail against a flat background. (The background of the physical Panther painting extends further than the image shown above.) As the eye focusses on the details, the brain fills in that which is not shown much better than if everthing is laboriously depicted.
