Painting In Progress


I haven’t  posted anything lately. Life gets in the way sometimes.

Here is a new painting that I am working on. This was my party dress  from when I was five.(It also has a Holly Hobby pinafore that goes over top.)  Now  Imogen wears them for dress up.  Once again, the past and the present intertwine into one.

I think that I am almost finished this one.  Almost.  It is harder to know with some paintings.

  1. The detail of your foreground and sketchiness of the background is a nice effect for this painting. I really like it. You allow the viewer to focus on what’s important!

  3. Thanks Elizabeth and Sandy (by the way, I am missing you). I don’t know, often when I am wondering if I am finished, it ends up being finished. There are a couple of little tweaks I think this one needs but the more I look at it, the more I think that it is done.

  4. it is beautiful, and the fact that she seems (to me) as faking a ciggarte in her hands, makes her look older or wantes to look older. don’t know, there is something about that that i like very much
