The painting within my paintings was taken from a black and white photo I came across on one of the millions of blogs I peruse daily. I wish I had bookmarked the site so I could tell you more. I just liked the way she looked and of course her lovely contrasting dress. I believe that is called pasymetry? Anyway, as I began to paint this piece I decided to loosen up my brush strokes and create a more painterly look. This painting is 16x20 painted on stretched canvas and will be accompanying me to South Portland this Saturday. I will be for sale in my Etsys Shop until then.
