I did this after viewing Degas' wall-sized drawing of ballet dancers following rehearsal, removing their slippers. All 4 figures are really just different views of the same individual. If he was without a model to view, Degas would make a wax figure, draw it, turn it a bit and draw it again. In my piece, the four figures represent Jay, Josh, Tony and A.J., in the locker room after hockey practice. Or was redhaired Mike in there somewhere?
