In Full Swing

In Full Swing    8"x9"   oil
This was a mannequin painted in a color like bittersweet chocolate and the sculptured ponytail made for a beautiful shape to paint. It was up on a pedestal with ceiling lights creating a warm glow on the walls. Together, it made for an image I couldn't pass up.
Pin It


  1. Wow, this picture looks so 1960's retro! Love the dark value with the yellows.

  2. Great subject matters you have selected Mary - very unique! Have you collected any yet for home props?
    Love your color palettes too.

  3. A wonderful composition. I had to open the thumbnail of this painting on another blog. Love you work, especially the figurative pieces.

  4. Who could resist that ponytail? Love it!

  5. I love your mannequin and shopping pieces so much! If I could own them all I would :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
