"Vraiment?" is a 60"x48" oil painting on canvas. Due to the size, this painting will ship rolled. Once it arrives, you can take the painting to a professional framing shop to have it re-stretched.

In French, "vraiment" means "really."
This painting was started on a Monday morning. That particular morning, shortly before 8am, I got a phone call with some not good news. It was definitely not the phone call one wants to receive ever - let alone on a Monday morning. It doesn't set a good tone for the week, and it can only be met with the rhetorical question, "REALLY?"
Is this really what's happening right now?
Is this real?
Is this really what I'm hearing?
Are you really serious?
Ouai, c'est vrai.
And so I took that frustration and disbelief and decided that what I needed was color. A lot of bright color. A slightly confusing amount of bright color. And then I mixed in a line drawing I had done in college. And then added more color.
