Daily Painting, "In A World of Her Own", 8x6", Oil SOLD

During a recent trip to New York City with friends, we spent a few hours at a lovely Manhattan rooftop bar.

SOLD
This young woman was sitting across the roof top.  I was taken by her pose and snapped a quick photo.



When I began painting, I quickly realized that the background, a brick wall, was not what I wanted.  I decided to keep it simple and put the full focus on the woman and her skirt.


I suggested the wall with a few quick strokes of terra cotta.
