Wanted to show you this - I already posted on Facebook awhile back. But I confess - I like it - probably because it was a struggle, but fun. It's a store window in Gadsden Al, with outrageous dresses on display. It was one of several I painted during the Gadsden Southeastern Plein Air event, and it's quite different from any recent painting I've done. Visitors stopped on the street and seemed to want to know the process while I painted it. Explaining an "artsy" thinking process to a non painter was a challenge, especially if you could see my messy preliminary underpainting. So there I was - all sweaty all afternoon painting those luscious shiny fabrics wondering how nice it would feel to clean up and go to a party!
