"Bean"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel 8" x 12"

Talk about stepping out of my comfort zone - first landscapes and now interiors. I have had this commission in the queue for months and finally decided to tackle it. The intense light and fauvist color allowed me to have more fun than usual. Bean was my friend Kim's longtime companion and was once given an opportunity to spend some time in the Virginia countryside. Once home, being a city girl and not free to roam, all she could do was wistfully dream of her days chasing butterflies from her SoWeBo windowsill.

Amazing - This is so different than your last post - don't know which I like better. You are quite versatile.

Thanks, Maragret. This painting took a few hours, the other one took days. Both are "Uniques", work slightly out of my comfort zone which also accounts for the disparity. I'm glad you like the both {;-)>

Mark - oh my goodness it's fabulous! I have just the spot for it and can't wait to see it in person. Thanks so much for doing justice to Ms. Bean.
