FINALLY! Some time for painting!  We're moved into the new house.  Although I don't really have an area that's appropriate for painting and there are TONS of things that need to get done around here (the house is "done", but not DONE) I still figured out a way to get some painting done.  I should have some more projects to post soon as well.

The idea for this one came from some of the vintage vacation photographs I collect.  I was SO ready for spring and liked the idea of some vintage ladies in big winter coats on a late winter day and their "bikini-clad" friend who is ready for warmer weather.

The painting is 8" x 10" and is oil on cradled hardbord.

I call it:  "Spring Fever"

So wonderfully clever. The smile on the bikini girl is spot on! Her friend can't believe her boldness.  Cheesy

Thanks everyone!  I've been swamped with prep for a fundraiser (I'll be creating a painting live at the event for silent auction) and trying to get a few other items finished up for upcoming shows.  I'm so far behind!! I'll post the work as I finish it if I can.

Thanks kittykill for the notice!
