Summer's Promise

It is 70 degree here Long Island today... the warmth inspired me to paint something to express the way I feel about the promise of spring time and warmer months to come. This was a fun quickie... 45mins...





There is a good deal more area around the portrait, but I decided to crop in close for posting purposes.

Joel, this is lovely! Shows wonderful action, movement, grace. Somehow, her arms look a bit too short to me.

Colors are beautiful!

Re: Summer's Promise

Joel, this is something so different I am used to see as your work and I love it. The whole pic is nicely lite and airy and oozis such a warmth towards the onlooker. You should try more of them... as an adventure into something different. I am saying this because sometimes i need a nudge also.

Re: Summer's Promise

Annie, always a pleasure to see your posts. Thanks for the nudge. I usually resort to these "quickies" when I'm in between commissions, yet I want a bit of practice. I think I'll try more of this type.

Thanks for your encouragement.
