Winston Chmielinski has the innate ability to balance his faintly morose subjects with an extensive palette of cheerful and rosy colors. I’m particularly fascinated with his “portraits” and the way he can masterfully render only an eye or an ear and yet leave the rest as foggy patches of flowery hues that sometimes run down the canvas. How did he know my mind would fill in the rest?
