And did those feet....7" x 6", oil on board, 2009

This is my entry into Karin Juricks DSFDF. The reference was in black and white and we were to introduce colour to bring out our own interpretations of it! I've been so busy lately and as usual didn't want to miss out so I did a quick Alla Prima of it. Wish I had time to do a more detailed version. I think it was a great exercise!



The piece reminds of a song I love so much that goes like this The scene is so peaceful it just strikes the same chord this song strikes in my heart!

Don't forget to VOTE- you can do it here
