New Girl in the Studio

Good Ole' Whatshername
6x6, oil on panel
Another in the Little Women series. I left even more background showing on this painting than I usually do and I love it. As an artist, I struggle daily tiptoeing along the fine line between fuss and finesse. When the ground color peeks through, adding tension and interest, I'm a happy girl. She'll look great in a floating frame where the canvas/panel appears suspended and the edges show all around. Aren't I lucky that they are en vogue?
