don't take your love to town

Maybe I am slap happy? Ever since I named my painting "Ruby" yesterday I have been singing Kenny Roger's song, "Ruby, don't take your love to town". Good song. I am taking the day off from packing to paint and have some fun. I have made lots of progress so I am am rewarding myself by painting some of my favorite characters. I am headed to the coast for an art show in a week so this is my last day to paint for the show.
Thanks for your comments on my paintings. I really appreciate your feed back!
This is painted on a 5 x 7" gallery wrap canvas.

  1. Carol, so enjoying your beach series...always have loved those pieces from you. Good luck with all the transitions you have going on.

  2. Love the title and the saggy suit. Such a fun series...they bring a smile to my face.

  3. I think this series is fabulous:)) I challenge you to do a huge one! I could see an entire show based on these paintings:)

  4. I just want to say hello to you Carol, I found you on the DPW.
    I absolutely love your approach of themes and your happy brushwork.
    Sometimes I even hear your characters chatting. :)

  5. Trying to think around Kenny Rogers now endlessly looping through my head (thanks for that, Carol!! LOL)...I'm thinking that this Ruby really does get around! These ladies always just bring a smile to my face.
