Happy New Year everyone!

I apologize for my lack of participation in the forum of late. Life dished out some setbacks which left me creatively barren for awhile but I was able to get back into my studio over the holidays.

I decided that I needed to do something just for fun with no concern for the outcome. I started out working on a larger version of a previous sketch (ya gotta start somewhere ;)) but pretty soon it took on a life of its own & this is what emerged.
I'm thinking that it's probably done & I must resist the urge to add more detail. Regardless, I'm always open to C&C.

Cheers! Coralie

I hope things are better now and I do know life can throw some interesting curves but you have nothing to apologize for, you're back and I'm thrilled to get to delight in your work again and this is delightful indeed. Hugs.

Such a fun painting! Such a saucy look on her face, and awesome hat.
