Absynthe

This is an original oil painting that has an odd story behind it. I can’t remember if I was actually drunk or not at the time, but I vividly remember passing by a window and catching, out of the corner of my eye, an image of this strange woman that I deperately felt I had to capture in paint (yeah, I was probably drunk). Normally I take my time, especially with oil paints, but I was able to complete this whole piece within half an hour. I liked it and so did a friend of mine, so I sent it to her. The “strange woman”, as it turns out, was just a reflection of a poster on the wall.
