I continue a long-running fascination with storefront mannequins and average passersby with this piece from Madrid, Spain.

Now, don't get me wrong when I write this: I love our country and I love us Americans. But I'll be the first to admit that when I'm in my studio painting or I'm out walking our dogs, I'm not exactly a well-dressed woman. I'm very casual, ultra practical and my highest priority is comfort, rendering me much like the rest of you who'd rather dash out to Starbucks on the weekend in our pajamas if we could.

In contrast to my everyday schlumpiness (technical term), I'm always dazzled by how crisply and sharply most Europeans dress. Their cool silhouettes make subjects like this infinitely more intriguing for me.

With this composition, I was drawn to the omniscient mannequins as they gaze out into our world, and the bold geometric shapes that frame the anonymous passerby as she fixates on her cell phone.
