I realized that painting into the background (around the original figure) would effectively revamp the walker to make her more svelte. (I wish we could so easily trim down in real life)! The topic in our recent art discussion meeting was "negative space" so I took this painting and explained how I changed it. (I also pepped up the color everywhere).
To see what everyone else brought....go Here.
Today Dave and I went to Longview to visit George Broderick. We had lunch and looked at all the fabulous art at his gallery. A really great visit. (Thanks for the picture, Dave)!
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Rainy Day Shopping, oil on 12x6 canvas panel
