Painting by Sophia Ehrlich, March 2005

When Sophia sent me a copy of this painting I thought it was a man lost in contemplation. When I asked Sophia what she thought this man was thinking about, she said, “nothing, he’s just taking a break from work.”

What appealed to her about his man, and what she wanted to portray, was the strength of his back and arms. I think she did a lovely job.
