There is a lot of movement in this piece, as if Laurence has captured this figure on the fly. The figure's expression seems heroic and mischievous at the same time. Laurence painted over a photograph and the effects are energizing.
Take a look at the missing postage stamp and lack of address! How Laurence's piece managed to find its way into my mail box is darn near miraculous, and it's why I love the postal system as an art medium. The missing stamp and chipped-away address allude to the random quality of chance. Thanks, Laurence!
