Jenny Kanzler, picnic, 2007, oil on canvas, 40 x 26 inches
This would be a great battle of shame. Put these two paintings in a room and let childhood and adulthood duke it out. Jenny Kanzler's picnic is like the beginning of awareness, while René Smith's Good Luck is practically a later version after years of lessons. Come to think of it, it wouldn't be a duel at all. Just a progression. These need to be on a wall together somewhere.
