Margaret - SOLD

"Margaret", 6 x 6 In, Oil on Canvas
The 6 x 6 inch panel seems so small to me that I have been avoiding this common practice of daily painters, choosing instead usually at least 8 x 10, though I did some portraits in August in 6 x 8 and 7 x 9. But I decided that it would be interesting to try because in doing figure paintings, the head portion of the figure is often small. So I started out with 6 x 6 inch panels at the end of last week.

  4. Really lovely sensitive portrait. I enjoyed catching up with your blog and seeing your progress with figures. On the Border has such sunny color and light.

  5. Thank you all for your comments! Margaret is my oldest daughter though she is in Ohio, so this was from a photograph of younger days. She is a violinist I'm very proud to say.
