Waiting in a Red Dress by Marie Theron

Currently unavailable for purchase

Oil on canvas. When I switched to oil painting (after years of watercolour painting and teaching), this became my signature work. I used it on my business cards and exhibition programs. For me there was so much joy in using the strongest oils after all the gentle watercolours.

My painting portrays a lady all dressed up, but subdued and waiting for something to happen.
