Finishing up...



Finishing up a few of the small paintings I started in a fury around Thanksgiving time. The piano ladies... I still am thinking of a good title that will explain the story behind it. Think I need to sleep on it!
The first one is inspired by my imagination when I was a kid... a 'what if' kind of thing. I did not like all the rules in school, including no gum chewing, no running in the halls, that we all had to play baseball on Mondays, etc. So, what if everyone had to have the same haircut? The same sack lunch? What would it be like to live that way, hmmm. Funny how some crazy childhood thinking turned out to be not such crazy ponderings after all :) Thinking I may make their shirts longer so they're not floating.

Thanks Beth :) You're probably right... I tend to do faces that have similar features to my own. I think a lot of artists do it... for me, it's unconcious!
