mother and child, and the fabulous Rodriguez...

mother and child...
a photo i found in a magazine that i thought was adorable.

i'm trying to paint a little more loosely...
I kept the same colors for mother and child.
2 browns and a blue. 
i love the warmth of this...
both dresses blowing in the wind.
As well as trying to paint more loosely,
i'm also trying to experiment with using different tools.
Like the palette knife.
 No goal in mind here except spreading paint
and adding pencil marks.
Whatever feels right.
And where art can NEVER be wrong,
anything goes!
That's the best part. :-)

What could be flowers.
A noose.
The sun.
more fish... (giggle)

And this lovely quote
forced me to add a star.
Yes, it's dancing. :-)

I watched a great movie (documentary) over the weekend.
Forgot to mention it in yesterday's post.

Called Searching for Sugar Man.

Loved it.
i love happy endings.
So much of life doesn't end happily.
This story does.

Check out the trailer. You might like it.
Thanks for being here.
I've had little time to comment on your blogs,
or respond to the wonderful comments you leave on mine,
but i'm visiting you and i'm so happy to see
so many of us making art
and sharing it with the world.

  5. Great interpretation of the mother and child. I like that you made them more solid and substantial and the cropping.

  6. The mother/daughter portrait is just lovely. Take care Pauline!
