The Dancer's Portrait - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell

I spent most of my day making Christmas goodies, but did set aside time to paint from a drawing I did earlier in a drawing group.  It was such a difficult pose, so we had the model stop after a few minutes or she would have had such a sore neck! I did get enough information down on paper to do a painting, though.  On gessoed panel, this painting is 12 x 9". 
Hope everyone's staying warm!  Thanks for stopping by my blog! Sold

A very nice piece and kind of you to think of the model.

Thank you, Bill; I do think modeling is a tough job - every time we have to sit in for a missing model, I'm reminded of how hard it is!
