moving on

Spotted this girl making strides at the beach and snapped her picture. I was disappointed because I did not get her whole body in the frame. Then...realized it made an interesting composition as a painting. Painted on an 8 x 10" gallery canvas.

  1. She looks like a girl on a mission and I'm imagining her also thinking "Wheeeeee!" as she rides along. Gorgeous, Carol!

  7. That's so lovely. You really captured her body language. I like that you make selective brushstrokes, something I'm working towards.
