    You’ve done a fantastic job and the sense of atmosphere and view of that water and the boat is OUTSTANDING! LOVE the feeling in this and the sense of romance and the ease of the way the painting is read by the viewer. Brilliant Frannie

  • Your last note about the “ease of the way the painting is read by the viewer” made me pause. I had not considered that. Thank you, Tahnja! Really appreciate your detailed feedback on this. It’s helpful!

    Oh, My. Gosh.
    DELICIOUS colors! And so many stories are possible…the “vibe” between the cat and the woman is electric, the background brings all kinds of ideas to mind… everything about this is intriguing. And it’s fluid, lovely!
    You brought your own inimitable Frannie-ness to this, and it glows with beauty!

  • Robin, thank you so much. The cat does seem a bit irritated at the woman, at the moment. I do appreciate the bit of tension he creates in an otherwise idyllic scene. Appreciate your comments here, and along the way, seeing the work in progress.

    Hi Frannie! I love so many things about this painting. The warm colors and quilt-like repeat reminds me so much of our Mucha and Klimt. Those squares have a Frannie stamp on this painting, as they harken to fabric design! go figure. The addition of the wonderful cat and switch in elements…for example I love the way the cat is sorta glaring at the woman grooming her tresses… as if the cat is thinking, “I can tell you a thing or two about grooming,” and instead of an airy landscape in the outside, you have taken the viewer to a seascape. Love the mirror you added which stands in as a porthole. OhMgeewhiz. circle back to the use of color which reminds me of our M. and K. The other day I was looking and studying you other oils… they are so very nice… oil is such a mystery to me… Love Beth

  • As a fellow Klimt fan, it is of course a compliment that Bellini Mod… reminds you of his use of decorative motifs within a space. I’m smiling to read your notice of the switched elements, too. Yes, and the cat is glaring at the woman, isn’t he? Once he got that look, how could I paint it out and take it away from him. It had to stay. I had fun making this my own. Thanks so much, Beth, for taking the painting out for a serious spin and taking the time to write. Wonderful. – F.A. Moore
