Vija Celmins, Gun with Hand #1

There are nice values of white, black and grey in this painting. The pure blackness of the gun draws attention to it. The grey around the arm and wrist creates dimension. I like how there is only an arm in the picture (and it is coming out from the side of the picture plane) because it gives a sense of anonymity to the picture.
