The Party Dress


Happy Holidays ,  Christmas is almost here,  hard to believe.  As usual I am not ready but I will be, I always am somehow.   I started this on Monday morning and thought it was finished Monday evening,  signed it and everything.  I decided after that it wasn't finished and I re-painted her face.  I think it might be good to not be in such a hurry to post my paintings and make myself look at them for a few days.  I really like to paint wet into wet and try to finish them quickly but quickly isn't always good.  Soooo I may start posting a couple a week instead of one every couple of days and slow down and decide if I am really happy with them.  This is in oil on a 11 X 14 Raymar panel.

Love that you have painted this in greys, suggests subdued excitement, she's ready to dance, I think.

Beautiful and sensitive. I like the subdued limited Palette. I'm glad you are working a bit larger lately. I see influences of Cassatt, Degas, Singer-Sargeant.

Thank you Sharon, never quite sure of the right background to go with. The white dress was so fun to paint.

I'm an art teacher. What can I say? I like to comment. I see so many good things in your work. I am impressed that you work so hard.

Well thank you for that Anita. I am working hard at it hoping one day to be considered accomplished at it. Nice you see that and it is really wonderful you follow my work.
