Diane Mannion, CATHY, 6x6" oil
When Cathy's around the lights go on. Filled with energy and constantly moving... hard to get her to stand still long enough to snap a photo. Mover and shaker at the Punta Gorda Visual Arts Center!
Painted over an old landscape with lots of texture. Difficult painting, had two wipeouts! A few beginning stages and a messy palette!:
First sketch over old landscape.
Cathy just before one of several wipeouts!
and a messy palette which may have
been why I struggled with this painting.
