Your style is unique and pleasing to me. Love the textures and the dream-like image quality you manage to capture. Keep up the great work.

Uh huh. Now I know a good day is coming. Tell me, were the reflective images intentional? Just curious.

Like I always say, just plain beautiful!!!!

I'll bet they'll wish they had this for the OPA show in Taos (although the one they have is gorgeous enough!)

Wonderful!!!!

..Thank you, Rosic.:) It seems as though when I paint the figure,..that "dreamlike" quality always emerges. Not necessarily with other subjects, however.
Don't you LOVE smooshing on thick, creamy paint?:p Cheers,-Scott

Painted Melody: Exactly. ;) Thank you.

Somerset,;...I always thoroughly enjoy your comments. In fact,..I look forward to them:) :) The reflections are simply intuitive,...I suppose. Thank you for visiting.Best Wishes,-S

..Glad you like her, Wayne. Aside from the lavender..(and obvious burnt sienna,.lol).......;I used some really rich metallic gold (Windsor & Newton)..blended into the backround. It did seem to make the color sing. Thanks for visiting..:D -S

..Hi Jim........Tomorrow,..I'll be starting a larger (24x32) nautical scene. Lots of boats,..dock,.buildings,etc....
Should be challenging.:p Talk to you soon,-S

..Egon,...I think that time is relative....
In-other-words,...I have been painting for many years..(mostly in watercolor);..so this painting was done in approximately 5 hours.(and 40 previous years of painting);) Good luck to you,..;I'm sure that you will find painting most rewarding..............
...in many ways. Best Wishes,-Scott
