Work In Progress-detail from a greenhouse

detail-greenhouse  7"x9"  oil  
I've been working larger today and this is a detail from what will be a finished 16"x20". I don't know when I'll  be able to show the completed work, as other things are shouting for catch up! This is from a covered area at our Farmer's Market in the fall and this woman stood, trying to make planting decisions no doubt. I think my big challenge will be to keep the surrounding shapes and color subordinate to the main idea....we'll see.

  1. Loving this! The composition and the colors are just fabulous. Love "her" as the focal point and can see where you are keeping the background loose. Can't wait to see the final full painting!!

  11. Just wonderful! I visited our local greenhouse last summer and took a bunch of photos but have not tried any of them yet. I love how you are keeping it 'loose' - can't wait to see it when it is finished!
