I created this work after looking closely at works by Francis Bacon. 
The work was created to possibly understand his process and technique. The particular piece I emulated was after a "Study for Head" of George Dyer, 1967, oil on canvas by Francis Bacon. Private collection. © The Estate of Francis Bacon / DACS, London, 2005.
Although I created my version in acrylic and pastel vs. oil. I found the process challenging and intriguing.

Cheryl Johnson: As an artist, I always encourage my interior design clients to select art first. It is important that they feel free to buy what they love and not worry about what it goes with. And then we can plan the decor around the art.
