Why I chose this art piece for the CD style

This is my own style and finding an appropriate image was challenging. Luckily, my style enjoys a good challenge and this painting is itself challenging. It shows the backbone and focus of the CD style, but in dark tones which suggest to me the no-nonsense style with its desire for privacy, control, and stability.
