Diane Mannion, MRS BUTTERSWORTH, 3.5"x2.5"oil on linen/mounted


Mrs Buttersworth was arrested early this morning after an altercation with an artist for allegedly stealing a scene.  Carted off by authorities, she'll spend the night behind bars in solitary confinement.  If she swears to behave, she'll spend two days doing artistic service for the viewing public. 

"Caused me a lot of grief," said the frazzled, bleary-eyed artist.  "But I'm willing to give her another chance if she'll hold still long enough without flipping her lid."

There will be two more Mrs Butterworth paintings, Snippets #5, and 6... maybe.

MRS BUTTERSWORTH, 2014 Snippet #4

I love this Diane! I like how your color notes depict form rather than line. You are so talented!
