Objects in Painting May Be Smaller Than They Appear

I painted this with a model a few years back, and I’ve always really loved the way it came out, the soothing blues and brush strokes combined with the pensive expression on the model. I went through a period of rebellion against the Renaissance tendency to paint nude men as though it was a very cold day indeed, and in this case ended up giving the model a bit of a boost (though it was a warm room) and that’s where the painting’s title comes from.
This painting is unframed but ready to hang as is.
