    Out for a Stroll.

    Bev Zajac Larsen has a challenge going to do a painting a day taking no more than 3 hours and here is June 2nd painting. I missed June 1st. but I just couldn't squeeze it in. The took a couple of hrs and just started as blobs. I then proceeded to "Shape" the blobs until it was time to quit. BTW, the kid is suppose to be a little girl but now I see it again I'm not sure.

    This is pretty fascinating: the "kid" reads to me as biblical and I see other biblical references ... like the two paths ... one of which could be seen as a stairway to heaven. The two ladies are also interesting as they seem to be from different modern ages.

    I like the warmth to this, I think it has a relaxed feeling about it. Best of luck with the painting challenge!

    wonderful stuff Jibes. Great interesting shapes throughout and the figures are splendid. I love their expressions. I think you really have the potential within of being a contemporary Edward Hopper. Your figures and faces are very reminiscent of his style.

    Edward Hopper! I been checking out his paintings and I am very impressed by his work. Not a bad aspiration to have!

    This is such a lovely, charming painting Jibes. It could have been painted for a story book. Well done

    Thanks Coops and Sandra. I look at this painting and I scratch my head but then again it is different.

    Jibes, somehow this all comes together wonderfully. The palette and colors are balanced beautifully, the images are fresh and spontaneous. It just works.
