    Familiar with Gainsborough’s piece ‘Lady in Blue’ but not with the artist Chad Wys…
    but find it incredibly interesting that his aggressive strokes of {modern} colour…
    wipe abruptly over the center realms of her thinking, speaking and feeling?
    Quite a remarkably strong {wordless} statement on the sitter and portrait~ xo
