Carp Diem

8 x 8 Oil On Gessobord

A study of an interesting woman...Very loose, but so great to paint!  I felt as though I was sculpting this woman with my brush.  There are things I might think about changing a little, but I'm leaving it as is and will probably do another one.  I'm learning that studies are really important. This has turned into one of my favorite paintings.  She was not just feeding the carp, but actually petting them...YUCH!  I'm pretty sure she was talking to them, as well :-)  It takes all kinds, right?!  She was enjoying the day, and that's what counts.  I just hope she went home with all her fingers....
