Artist's statement

While waiting for a friend at the De Young Museum, I was drawn to a rather attractive older woman sitting in the middle of the lobby working on her make-up, oblivious to all around her for quite some time. The juxtaposition of this 'work-of-art' in progress surrounded by a wealth of art on the walls told me this was a moment worth capturing.
