Wow Katie, you've outdone yourself this time. What a great composition and the colours are wonderful and as Robyn said the pink dress is a great surprise. I really like it.

Dear Katie, I haven't had a lot of time, but wanted to pop in and say how lovely your art has been. This is such a well painted and lovely scene. My son loves it too. He said, Mom, please save this! xoxo take care.

What a brilliant image. Fragonard, you old master swing painter, eat your heart out. This lass here depicted looks to have been swinging so much that she lost her powdered wig and petticoats, and the entire palette changed, such that she's come to modern times.

Like everybody said, that background -- another great one. Love the colors and the handling of the paint marks make it all feel as if assembled of fallen fall leaves. A real harvest time experience. The crops are in. Business handled. All's right with the world. Relaxing in the russety glow of just after sunset.

Or maybe it's like a forest deva is playing around after everybody's gone home to dinner. I dare say she looks like she could use a good push though. She's not quite learned the trick of getting it to go. Perhaps like a landlubber's version of the good ol' mermaid giving up her tail and kind of working out the legs business. The swimmer's butterfly kick won't get the swing going. I think we need to borrow a model from later French painter who also could paint swings, Bougerreau, and ask for a push from one of the satyrs.

Dear Mr Akey , how lovely and kind your decriptive words are and I love reading them. Fragonard's The Swing is so pretty and boy what lovely greens he used. Thanks for the reminds of this wonderful painter:)

I really like this one, especially the grass in the left corner and the leaves on the tree - lovely effect, what brushes did you use if you don't mind me asking?
