Hi Ho


At the very least, it looks like a lady holding a baby.

This was started for a particular figurative show but didn't get finished in time. It's painted on a thick weave linen.

This is also one of those paintings that was a struggle to paint. I don't know why that happens; why some paintings I toil over almost from the beginning. On paintings like this I wish I had seven little dwarfs to help me work.

It's so beautiful. I love your use of color. I didn't even notice it at first, but taken out of context, you look like a punk rock chick with the color streaks in your hair. Just a testament to how well the colors work in this piece. Gorgeous!

Punk rock chick. That's funny.
Thank you.

When you find those seven little dwarfs, send them on my way when you're done with them. I got lots of work for them too.

I think it looks great.
