Lady in Green. 'Ready' Series #5


This piece was commissioned by my Aunt Nedra. She asked for a flowy green dress and shoulder length brown hair on a cream background. She wanted the hair to be in an up do, but after spending several hours trying to get it to look just right, I gave up.....I actually think I might have had a mini tantrum:)  Every time I tried to get the hair right, she just kept looking like Princess Leia with a honey bun on her head. Not a good look. So her hair is down and looks just fine. I hope you like it, Aunt! Sorry, the pics don't look so great...the lights in the craft room were reflecting off the glass. The first shot is before I framed it. This piece measures 20 X 22 unframed.

Again, WOW. The "flowing" dress really does look flowing, and in a relaxed, easy way. I really your background stippling.
