SLANT T-shirt

Here's a view of the art for the first SLANT T-shirt to be available to art-loving T-shirt collectors in over 15 years.

The oil painting was done in the mid-'90s. The public first saw it when it appeared on a SLANT calendar. My goal for the piece, when I was doing it, was to figure out how to paint eyes that would follow the viewer, no matter where he stood. We've all seen those paintings in galleries where the eyes seem to do that.

When I finally got it -- at least it seemed to me it worked -- yes, it was very satisfying. Click here to go to F.T. Rea's Inkbites to learn more about buying the T-shirt.
