Figure Study

10x10 oil on Raymar
Inspired by Kelley's postings from her exciting week spent in Karin Jurick's Hilton Head workshop I worked up this figure study (WIP) of a couple I saw walking at Slide Rock in Sedona last Spring. I plan to add all the highlights and detail that Karin includes in her beautiful figure paintings. I love seeing older couples hand in hand like this. So sweet.  I didn't have much time to work on it before I came up to New Hampshire to visit my little boys. Ryan will be 8 next week. Time flies.

What a stunning painting, Mary. Your figures and light are wonderful and then the background adds even more to the feeling you've captured-wow.
Have fun in New Hampshire with your boys. My baby girl in Charlotte just turned 8 months and the second baby girl in Greenville SC is 5 months. I'm sure you remember the fun of those times with your boys!

I love this painting because first, I am so attracted by your use of color. Beautiful. Secondly and probably the most important thing to me is that it stirs a memory or emotion in me that takes me back to sweet places. I love it!
