inching in

This 6 x 18"canvas size is a perfect stage for my Boston ladies. First time to paint on this size. My camera does not like this long size as well. Kind of blurred out the lady on the right.

Still wondering about the hands on the hips thing. Are their arms tired? Maybe trying to hide love handles? I think the one hand on the hip on the lady on the left looks very glamorous. What are you thoughts?sold

  2. What a bevy of bathing beauties! Love that narrow canvas too. Hands on hips? Gearing up for battle? Hmmm...

  6. Carol, You always give me a much needed laugh. I am thinking this is a toss up between tired arms and hiding those love handles!? Love them all and appreciate that they are out there in their bathing suits with confidence! Keep these coming= they are awesome!

  7. This is such a fun, playful piece Carol. Love how neutral you kept the water so the colorful swimsuits has a place to shine.

  10. I'm enjoying looking at your work. I just have to jump in and answer the question about hands on the hips. I'm uncomfortable without pockets for my hands; in a bathing suit I'd probably put my hands on my hips.
