Girl in Orange, oil on canvas, 20" x 20" SOLD
I really like this painting and am especially pleased with the sculptural feeling of the bathing suit area and the legs. The colors were an experiment for me too. (What reads in this photo as blue is actually a greenish gray.) I think I'm getting back to my love of sculpture, and my student studies of it. In the end, I found the materials (marble and wood) cumbersome because of size and weight although I loved shaping them with hammer and chisel. Paintings are more portable. And tomorrow I'll transport myself to NYC to see the Matisse show. Whee!!
