"After the Bath"


Judy Mackey, a very talented artist suggest stepping out of our comfort zone. Well here it goes folks, this is a painting I began 2 months ago. I want to finish it by next month. What's the worse that could happen? I have lots of failed attempts in my closet.

  1. ...doesn't look like this will be "in the closet", Joan.

  2. Who of us doesn't have a TON a failed attempts?!
    I look forward to seeing how it goes...it's looking great right now. I thought immediately of Mary Cassatt when I saw it.

  4. Hi Karen, I've always been of fan of Mary Cassatt. Just watched the Other French Revolution, not much about Mary, but I do have books. Thank you for the support.

  7. Hi Judy, thank you for stopping by. I know how busy you have been, between painting and judging. I don't know how you do it all.

    I appreciate your opinion, and I do love Mary Cassatt's work. I took some more shots of my grand daughter and her mom tonight.

    Have a great day,
    Joan

  10. Hi Joan. I don`t know how I missed this lovely
    portrait when you first posted it, sorry.
    I can`t see that anything else needs to be done to it Joan. You can call yourself a portrait painter now. You have done a great
    job on the face, brilliant infact. Well done
    my friend, and all the best.
    Vic.

  11. Sorry Vic, just noticed this posting. Thank you, you are very kind. I promised my daughter in law that I will complete this by Nov. You may be right, maybe I can call this one done. Thank you Vic.
