Minor Adjustments - Preparing to Dance

Minor Adjustments          10" x 8"             oil
I am working on a commission, but took time out today to 'play' with an unrelated image.
This is a dancer in Basque costume getting ready to perform at a festival in Boise. I loved the hot and cool reds where the shadows played across her headscarf. Fun and always one of my favorite subjects.

This painting is a huge success, Mary!!
The lost, soft, and hard edges, so much in evidence here, is goal for which I continue to strive!!!
