I've been AWOL for a few days. Aside from the dizzying annual event that is Kelley's Birthday, I've been focusing on developing some paintings from my NYC trip - and I'll show you one small study, it's a 6x6, but I want to do it bigger - just wanting to see about composition, etc.
This is a little girl whose parents, with me, were resting their feet at the edge of Central Park, and she was ANTSY to go-go-go~ She was rocking, tapping, humming... backlit, with traffic in the background, and pigeons at her feet. I adored her little outfit and her cute hairdo. Well, I like this (and I know what you're all going to say) but my husband thinks her face is too much the same value as the building in the back. I said that her actual face had lighter parts that I didn't paint in because it's a Work In Progress- not the finished piece. And besides, what's wrong with a lost edge here and there?
Anyway, between this and the 2 'wipers' this week, it LOOKS like I'm on vacation - HAH!
