"Sitting Pretty"

"Sitting Pretty"  16" x 20" x 1.5"  Original oil on Canvas

This little lady has been painted and painted again...trying to get the correct mix of color scheme and brushstrokes.  She originally had a green background with a brighter dress.  Toning down the colors and adding more obvious brush strokes has made a world of difference.  It's neutral enough to hang in any home.  

When I complete a painting, I ask myself where exactly I would hang that in my house.  Sometimes I just LOVE bright colors and enjoy working with them so much that I forget I need to make the piece fit in a home.  This is a perfect example of having a pretty and fun theme with hints of color.  The white spots in the fabric indicate a little sparkle as well.
