A figure study from a live model. This pose is pretty appropriate for the time that we live in. The slightly shabby clothing, the posture of almost sadness; it reminds me of a scene out of the Great Depression. It is like the man is down and out on his luck, maybe he hasn't had a hearty meal in days, waiting in line for something...food stamps...a job...hope? It wasn't all that long ago that a lot of people were feeling very similar to that. Perhaps this model, in real life, knows that scenario all too well.
