The Window - figurative oil painting

Just fooling around with a bit of a landscape and a girl in a black dress.  I'll no doubt do more to it - things to do - but I've enjoyed painting this one. Have been straightening my studio - what a mess!  When I get busy drawing or painting, I don't seem to notice the jumble of stuff, but when I'm through and take a look around, I'm pretty disgusted.  So for the next few days, I will just combine cleaning with my drawing endeavors and maybe someday, I'll adopt a "clean as I go" approach.  This painting is on 10 x 10" panel.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

As long as we're artists we'll never be neat!! Lol. When my Dad past away, I made his room my little studio which I love...however, it gets messy fast ..I "try" to straighten it out after I finish a painting. If I don't, it's harder to keep it neat.
I love your newest piece, Connie. I hope you post this one again if you add more to it.

I clean my studio once a year - if it needs it or not :) Nice painting

Hi Hilda - you make me feel better that we artists aren't always the neatest, but I know you're right about cleaning as we go - (sigh) - if only I could do that! Thanks for visiting!

Hi John - I think I may be following your method of a once a year cleaning - but I'll bet anyone who can build a boat is a lot more organized than I am, so you probably don't have a lot to do when you tidy up - thanks so much for stopping by!
