Carousel


Carousel
6" x 6", oil

Stop this thing, I want to get off!!! That's all I could think while painting this. I've never painted a human figure before so like an idiot I chose about the most difficult photo I could find. I spent way too much time on it until finally washing my hands of it. I wasn't going to post it, but in the effort of full disclosure... here it is.

  2. I agree with Sheila, I would love to see more figures in your paintings. You always were good in figure drawing as I remember in your college days. I love this one! Mom
