Finger Painting


PENNY   24" x 19"   Oil

I've been enjoying myself again, by way of getting back into the swing of painting. I love getting my hands dirty (and clothes and furniture), and slipping, sliding, dabbing the paint on a smooth surface is glorious!
I framed this yesterday while it was still wet, forgetting to photograph, and then proceeded to vigorously clean the glass! You can imagine the outcome. And I very nearly re-framed after the clean up without photographing again. Senior moments are becoming an all too frequent occurence.
Looking at this now, I have a mind to darken the background. We'll see. Painted from a photograph taken at one of the HAS life sessions.

Hi Sharon - Penny is beautifully done! What I especially like is her shiny 'bling' on her wrist and hand. Nice view and perspective! I know what you mean about getting in a rush and forgetting steps in the process of sharing. Photographing your work correctly is so important - but then we get excited about what we've accomplished!

That's a gorgeous nude, so classy and relaxed. Wonderful.
