Lil Mom

7 1/2 x 12
oil on linen

I painted this from a photo a friend took of a little girl at a garage sale.  I can't resist a good figurative snapshot and tried to keep this one real loose.  There wasn't a lot of contrast in the photo (cloudy day)  but enough to pull out a few features.

10 x 10 oil on panel

Another figurative I tried to keep loose.  Her gesture/pose appealed to me and I wanted to try to paint it.  I love spontaneous gestures like this one - wish I could get more references like this.

Always a Bridesmaid.....

20 x 20 oil on canvas

Painting, then scraping off - trying to be loose and got carried away with details?????  This was not what I originally envisioned but I'm fairly pleased with the final result, especially since this started out as a back view of girls (I added faces).
