Breezy Dancer

I've always loved images of lacy curtains being ruffled by a slight wind. This is a smaller version of what I'd like to paint on a larger scale one day. Maybe not this particular image but something similar.

Happy New Year, Sheila!

Love the title. I agree, this would make a great larger painting...maybe even a series??

Always loved this subject, too, and you did a great job!

Wonderful subject, Sheila! I think lacey curtains being blown by a breeze would make a fantastic larger painting. It can bring nostalgic feelings for so many!

Sheila,
I like this painting a lot. You captured a loose breezey style just right. I think it would be great in a bigger format.
Like your blog and enjoyed seeing your work!

Hi Sheila, Wonderful! I like how the brush strokes in the currents add to the feeling of movement!

Mark Sheeky said...

Cool! Cloth is such a joy to paint isn't it?

Gary Heller said...

This is beautiful. You've captured the movement, lighting and mood.

So happy you are painting and blogging again, Sheila! Love the title and agree this piece would work well in a larger format - maybe Dean's on to something suggesting a series! You captured the breeze and with it a bit of mystery! Do another!

Sheila love the new look of your blog! Wonderful brush work on the curtain on this!

Tout comme vous ma chère Sheila j'ai toujours aimé voir le vent jouer avec les rideaux... e vent qui s'invite à pénétrer et à jouer l'indiscret dans la maison...
Belle toile.

Happy New Year, Sheila. This piece is terrific. Love the rough quality and the strong brown shadows on the white window and drapes.
