, "The Wave"

Duplicate of Alexander Harrison's painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, below. Side-by-side it's quite remarkable how amateurish mine looks even with the reduced original. At the museum, the Harrison piece is extraordinary for its sense of photo-realistic illusion of a natural occurrence that is almost abstract in itself.
