Sometimes the simplest things are the best.

Very colorful and striking dear Katie:)
I always like the simplicity of your paintings: color touches, gentle strokes but so expressive. Brava!

Wonderful image, Ms Coops. As mentioned by Shadowslake, simple is sometimes the best choice. It's always nice to see just how little we need to do to capture the elusive "it" we strive for. . . if we're that articulate and to the point.

This one is very simple, but it says it. I really like the sort of spongy flesh tone that emanates from those areas. And I like how you contained it with some well placed containment lines like the glass in Pheasant Under Glass. (I mean the food dish, even though that sounds like a trashy book title. . . if it were 'peasant').

Reminds me of the old first half of the century magazine cover illustrations.

Very well edited.

Silvy, Rondo, Belvrog and Weeks thank you so much for your very kind comments and so happy you liked this one:)
Dear Mr Akey, I always love to read your painterly words and smile as I am reading them. Sometimes I am at a loss as what to paint but something strikes a chord and off I go to who knows where till the painting is finished. I am so happy that you enjoyed this one too as it was a little different to my usual paintings. Thank you again dear
Mr Akey.:)
