Princess Willy Nilly, revisited

11x14" oil on canvas, available on MY WEBSITE

This painting was sitting in my studio for several months...buggin' me. Couldn't quite put my finger on it. So I kept it in my line of vision while I worked on other paintings. I futzed with the background a little but completely re-worked the face. And now I'm happy with her. Funny, how you just know when you're finished with a painting. And when you're not.

Wonderful painting, Brenda. You're right, it feels absolutely complete. The integration of the head into the overall picture plane is really satisfying.
