    beautiful painting

  • Your encouraging comments are so appreciated. I suspect the weary look of Hitra is from her years in the back of the closet. let’s see if it dawns on her that she’s ‘out on view’ and whether even a hint of a smile shows up.

    gauguin ??

  • As I implied when commenting on your energetic painting recently, I like being able to see an artist’s process. Gauguin revealed his wonderful process in his paintings.
    Thanks for your comments.
