Oil on panel with stretched muslin. Been waiting several days for this to dry before I could put it up.

Love the sense of space here. How big is this one?

This makes me feel, which is a measure (my measure) of art. Fantastic!

It speaks volumns. Beautiful.

Thanks very much for all your thoughts :)

I agree with you anonymous - that's a good measure to judge against.

Dimensions 14" x 12"

This is really wonderful. Awsome lighting. You have to wonder where she is. My first thought is she is standing in the road. Is she waiting for something to arrive, or trying to make a decision? The title suggests a decision; however, the pose makes me thing waiting. Maybe its thought about what she's waiting for. Does she want it to arrive?

hahah! - I love that you're trying to figure it out BGOZ, I have been sitting here for 3 days straight staring at it, wondering the same things to myself!

This is really nice, Ester.

Others seem to have said most of what I would say.

Oh my Ester this is awesome. I could sit and stare at this painting for hours. Or gaze at it then walk away just to find I need to go back and wonder what she is thinking or waiting for.

This is BEAUTIFUL! Did you work from a picture, or entirely from imagination? I love to imagine what she's looking up at.... Well worth the wait Ester. ;)

I referenced a photo, but cropped everything out down to one figure, which I loosely followed along with paint. But it was a black and white, so I turned it colorful with my oils.
