Basque Color

Basque Color             10" x 8"       oil on linen
The Oinkari Basque Dancers performed this weekend as part of the annual St. Ignacio Festival here in Boise. I took a lot of photos and was able to grab some time today to paint this flag bearer after a performance. It was a colorful, fun festival weekend with friends and relatives and I really enjoyed painting this one.

Pin It

I always love any of your Basque series. The costumes are wonderful and the way you paint them shows me you love them too.
Had time to catch up on some of the posts I have missed. Your work is amazing and inspirational with all the movement in your skies and water
That darned housework can get in the way of us painting - can't it?
