Violin Player 12x16

This is a small painting of a girl in an open painting session
Thanks for looking,i did this from a photo i took while there


WOW it's been sooo long I couldn't remember my pass word. Had a peek at the last few months. Some great stuff. Good to see you painting so much Elliot, and Dave some really beautiful explorations. Brian, not as prolific as usual? Anyways, my life has been crazy. The good news is I am back. I have a new street front studio, with a window. I've sold a couple recently, and I CAN'T WAIT to start painting again. I finished this yesterday, had started it months ago.
