Birthday Party

"Birthday Cake"

7"x 5" Oil on linen panel

After many distractions, like having the plumbing replaced under my house!, I'm back at the easel again. I don't know about you but when I have a lot of stressful things going on and workmen going in and out through my work space, I find it a bit difficult to paint! This last week was a week like that. How rewarding it was to paint this little party piece today with no one to bother me. My husband took a photo of this scene a few years ago at one of our friend's party and I just love how the light illuminated this girl's face. I'm happy in that I think I captured the moment.

$80.+ $8.s&h.

I love everything about this Marilyn, from the joy on the little girl's face to the wall paper in the background...great job!

I love paintings with people doing everyday things. I can hear the giggles just by looking.
