Lacing up

Hello, I painted this on Monday, a reference photo from Wetcanvas. I wanted it to be very loose and impressionistic, hopefully I accomplished that. I used a palette knife to get some heavy texture for the skirt. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and I may adjust a few things on it yet.
I am getting ready for a art show this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. This is a antique and art show, their 38th year and last year was the first time they included art. First time for me, I hope we have a good turn out.
Spring is here, crocus are in bloom and I love it. Isn't spring just the best time of the year?

I really like the looseness and simplicity of this painting. Job well done Barbara. Good luck on your upcoming show.

Hi Bill, Painting is the best! Sounds like you need to paint your granddaughter in her ballet outfit. So nice to see you. :)
