I hope this falls into the two subject category, I really considered it through and through and understand how some people might have a problem with it, but it was a difficult shot to take and set up so I am submitting it regardless haha.

I enjoy the image, it makes me feel like the painter is cross eyed.

clearing out the space for it took about 2 hours and playing with the crappy fluorescent lighting in there. I got my dad to model for me, which was an accident as originally there was to be simply a the paper but it felt too empty and lacked a narrative or any kind of a story so I asked him to sit on the stool for me.

Great idea to add the painter gazing at the blank canvases. This is a good lesson for me. I think the painter is lacking from many of my shots -- the one human touch to add interest and drive the story. Congrats on the nice score and thanks for the lesson.

This is an awesome scene, and the B/W goes great for it. Composition and maybe some more sharppen are the only points of improvement here, in my humble opinion. I like it.
