The Mandolin Player - original figurative oil painting

 
Although I'm not really finished with this painting, I just decided to go ahead and post it tonight.  It's on a 12 x 16" archival canvas board.   I'm going to make some changes, but I just don't know what they'll be, yet.  Sometimes, if I just forget about a painting, then weeks later, I'll pass by it and think 'oh yeah, I know just what it needs'.  The back burner is the place to put things when I need to figure out what should be done.  We'll see if it works this time.  Thanks for stopping by Hackberry Street Studio!

I love it when I can figure out what to do to finish one of those "back burner" pieces! (I have way too many.)

Hi Lucy - I use that method every chance I get, but in this case, I worked from one of my drawings. Thank you for visiting!

Hi Diana - I also have way too many of those but I agree the satisfaction is great when they finally work out! Thanks for dropping by!
