    Old Ma Gumby's Boots (as finished as it will ever be)

    i have moved on and try as i might i cant get any further with this
    in my head she is surrounded by tiny helpers she is holding a bunch of sticks and her wn old walking stick
    but they will stay stuck in my head
    so i thought i would show it before i shove it in a folder and forget it.

    I think she's quite endearing but with a mischievous nature?..Would like to see her tiny helpers though before she gets confined to a folder...
    I like her....
    Take care,

    Don't be so hard on yourself Trish - it's a wonderful painting and she has so much character showing in her face. I know you have a amazing imagination as well as talent and you have so many things on the go that you can't wait to get on to the next. Please don't leave her sitting in a folder too long. Take her out and have another look and as Caesar suggested, maybe a background - it would give you somewhere magical for little helpers to play hide and seek.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    Very cool. Also a little peculiar like she might be more than she appears. Do not accept an apple from her, whatever you do.

    I feel there must be a story to go with this painting. Love it

    I like her, and I really like the texture to her right hand and her face. And the textile on her shoulders. And her hair. Well done
