Lady of the Woods



14 x 11  –Oil on Canvas

The holidays have begun and I’m finding it more and more difficult to find the time to paint, and time isn’t the only issue, getting focused in the other.  When I don’t paint I find myself feeling lost.  I become irritable and frustrated.  I start feeling a little depressed when I’m away from the canvas.  So, although I planned to put up the Christmas Tree I opted instead to work on this small painting.

This painting is called “Lady of the Woods” and I love her dress!  When I was a little girl my mom took me see “Gone With the Wind” in the theater.  At the time they were doing a special re-release of the film.  She told me that I would love it and that the women wore beautiful dresses.  I did love it!  I can still remember the theater–it was sold out.  There was even an intermission, which I had never experienced in a film before.  It was a special experience that I will never forget.
