Oil On Canvas

Robert Henri said, "paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers."
Prior to painting these young ladies, I had met two of them some years ago only for a brief moment; the third not at all. However, by the end of the painting, I felt as if I knew them. It was as if I could feel their personalities through my brush.
Speaking of the feathers on a bird, I have discovered that I really enjoy painting fabric patterns.
