I’m not one for doing paintings over again, but this image has stuck with me since I initially finished my original contribution to the Lolita cover project. I think I might actually prefer it to my first take on Humbert. Here he is disintegrating beneath his own obsession, a trick of the paint that seems to work in the picture’s favor.
