Isn't this piece of lace quite beautiful?
Look at it again more closely. Do you see it?
The lace is really part of the painting below.
The lace is from a close up photo I took of his left knee.
I have always been facinated with the detail of fabrics and lace shown in paintings. This painting is at The Getty in Los Angeles, and I use it here as an example to show the detail the artist achieved while painting the lace. There are so many beautiful paintings, but I wanted to show detail from a painting whose subject would ordinarily just receive a passing glance from me.
