|Sophie and Samantha|
acrylic and charcoal on paper 16 x 20 inch
This painting has been in the works for a while. Today as I worked on it in my art class, I decided to call it done. Halting screech...DONE. I feel very ready to work on something else.
I should tell you about the funny story that inspired it...of the two girls playing in their yard...one jumping up and down on the roof of a car with sounds of the metal giving beneath her feet with each jump...and her sweet little voice yelling across the street at me and my dog as we walked by "HI!"...and her presumably older sister shushing her and telling her not to talk to strangers...Mom said not to talk to strangers.
I saw these same two girls weeks later playing with balls...both girls in dresses with up-do hair. And it was at that point I decided to paint them.
Adorable impressions left in my mind.

Leaving you with this image. We just need a pair of doves sitting on the lower wire, don't you agree?
Wishing you all peace today.
