A Little Modesty - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell

This 6 x 6" painting is on Gessobord and was done from a drawing that I did in a life drawing group.  I get such a kick out of painting quickly and just letting the chips - or in this case, the paint - fall where it may. 

Today, I worked while listening to Matthew Pearl's The Poe Shadow.  When we lived in Washington, D.C., we often went to Baltimore to see the formerly fabulous Orioles play and would occasionally visit the gravesite of Edgar Allan Poe.  As soon as I finish this book, I'm going to reread all of his works.  That'll keep me busy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

There are some time I appreciate your painting. It is very expressive and the colors very well chosen. A little intimate. I like it.
