Good Morning,
She is still on my easel. During this morning's art period, I was ready to start painting her face. I don't know why but I have been avoiding the face. She is still a work in progress but it does help to console me if I can bring her in picture form with me for the day to this desk in town.  Isn't is odd that one can see the little things that need changing when looking at the screen.

I wish I were at home with her and still painting.

  1. She's going to be so great! I love watching you bring people and paintings alive. She has such a quirky face...you can't stop looking at her and her expression. Not sure if she's pondering something or is puzzled, maybe a bit surprised at what she's reaching down for or feeding?

  4. Afternoon Sharon. She is coming along so well! Been waiting to see how you were doing with her.

    I often look at my paintings on my one of my computer screens after I'm done for the day. I see things I don't notice while I'm up close and personal so to speak with the painting. And yes, I do take breaks often and step back 5 or 6 feet and look. But there is just something about having it on that reduced screen that magnifies things!

  7. Hi Sharon, hope you are well!
    I love the Klimt feeling of the painting. He is one of my favorite painters. She is really coming to life, there is a very happy feeling coming from her!

  8. You are right. I think I may start doing "dummy posts" of my artwork mid way through. That way I'll be able to see exactly what needs to be changed. Your girl has a very determined look about her and I love the way you give your girls a raggety edge to their clothing. Background is wonderful on this one so far.
