January 6 - The Young Spinner

Riffling through photgraphs from days past, I came across this spinner of wool, a model that I posed in a chair, and just loved the way the light fell across her form. None but to paint it, this time in oils. I did another one, several years ago, with more background and detail in acrylics as a true miniature--it sold within hours of being finished. Also won an award. But those were miniature days. This is a 7 x 5 on linen attached to board. I like its "J. S. Sargent" looseness!
These late night painting sessions are doing me good--I have no cognizant mind to make painting laborious. Love it, completely. Who would have figured?
