Fun at Folklife

This is a 1/4 sheet painting of a couple who were part of the crowd at the 2008 NW Folklife festival. I found her face intriguing and his a little unsettling. Her outfit begged to be painted.

    I can understand your desire to paint this woman… yes her outfit very paintable.
    I like your treatment of the background too.

    You keep getting better Mimi, I was having a conversation with a portrait artist here Susan Cesarini, who paints in oils, she said discussing paintings and journeys in painting… “Your best painting is always ahead of you!” and I will never forget these words.

    Each time I see one of your paintings I’m excited to see the developments and am anxious to see the next one, for you get better with each Brushstroke!
