The person who commissioned this picture said, "Paint anything you want." That was quite a commission as I'm used to art directors and clients specifying every last detail. I decided to paint him a scene from my imaginary world of Noantri. Here on the balcony are a pair of elegant, privileged Noantri, dallying in a seaside island resort reminiscent of the Greek islands. The evening sunlight turns the town amber in the last minutes before sundown. After the sun has set this couple will set out for a sophisticated night on the town.
