Miss Bartlett

"Miss Bartlett"
10" x 8"
Oil on canvas panel
"You young gals can wear anything with shapes like that," said Granny Smith to Miss Bartlett.  "I'd look positively round," she sighed as she buffed a new highlight onto her cheek with a dishcloth.  "And to be able to stand there next to that shade of violet... well, I do declare, it complements your skin tones perfectly."

Here's another in my series of single items against a decorative background.  Being a dyed-in-the-wool faux finisher and muralist, I know a lot about visual texture and the techniques used to create it—leaving the surface smooth to the touch.  I'm enjoying making this series.  I hope you are, too. 

This pear painting can be seen and purchased through Dailypaintworks.com.  I have a gallery of paintings there that can be accessed by clicking the link in this paragraph.  

Thank you for checking in to see my work today.
