Mmm, at the moment I'm just thinking, yer off, way off on this one, Wayne!
John - you win the turkey!
On one hand, I can only offer up that this is one of the first paintings I ever did. So the fault is mine if the posture is misleading.
On the other hand, it's up to the viewer to interpret. Two guys thought the same thing (though one did see more). It's all good.
On an additional hand, it's sad that no one noticed the shadow figure to the right, on the sidewalk, that seemingly has the Fedora hat man's attention. Who is it? Is it a pre-planned meeting under the light post?
That's all it was about. Although I will never see it like that again.
