Rower



Another submission just under the wire. I started this a couple of weeks ago and just didn't get to it until now. While I was painting, I was wondering how many other people thought about Paula Villanova while they were working on their pieces. There is a definite resemblence to Paula in her dark shades as she appears in her avatar don't you think? oil on masonite 8" x 6 1/2"

  4. You're right Vern! She does look like Paula. Maybe she rows as well as run. Great job my friend.

  8. Your boat details and that amazing foreground water (love the masses of color surrounded by gray) make me sorry I didn't try this one. What I love most is that I don't think you 'copied' what you saw but you truly injected an artist's vision of the beauty that should/could be there. WELL DONE!!!

  9. Thank you all for the kind words. I'm finding it harder and harder to find time for blogging and painting, but I do appreciate all your comments.

  13. Geez Vern...I'm sorry I've dropped out of blogland for awhile because of a new job but imaging my surprise when I returned and saw this piece! And know what? I row too! (But I swear it isn't me!)Anyway...I hope it's not too narcissistic to say I really like this piece...and frankly, I'm touched!Your work continues to astound...happy painting!

  15. Nice job and yes, there is a resemblance to Paula.
    I have neglected the challenges, too and when I get that near to the wire, usually miss it.
    I think we all have summer fever about now.Keep painiting...
