  8. Fun gouache painting Chris - got some tubes of it awhile ago and need to begin sketching and messing around with them. Do you have a theme for your Jan2017 30/30 challenge?

    1. No, no theme, Teri. That sure would have simplified things. It's a crazy month around here. I can't paint everyday, but I hope to get 30 done.

  10. You are amazing, Chris, and the detail you put into your drawings/paintings makes the picture come alive.

    Have a beautiful day! Hugs!

  13. Like everyone else who commented, I love the movement of this painting. I also think Pattie's word "sassy" was the most fitting description of the girl's attitude - at least the way I see her. Plus, I get a kick out of the fact that she was tipsy:) Keep going!

    1. Haha! She was VERY tipsy, but very sweet. I remember her husband encouraged her to leave after her performance.

  18. Her hair is my fav part i have a love of wild red hair in paintings. I think it stated looking by at the Pre-Raphaelites work of Rossetti and his red headed model, Lizzie.

    1. Thanks, Julie! Bet the Celts had something to do with all that wild red hair in Italy.

  19. Bonjour chère Chris,

    Un challenge qui n'est pas facile du tout ! Je suis admirative !
    J'aime beaucoup cette belle jeune femme celtique. Sa chevelure me fait penser à celle de ma fille qui se prénomme Fauve.
    Une belle harmonie de couleurs accompagné d'un joli mouvement.
    Bravo l'artiste.

    Gros bisous
    Je vous présente tous mes voeux les plus sincères. Que cette année soit à la hauteur de vos espérances. Pleine de petits et grands bonheurs à savourer chaque jour de l’année.

    Toute mon amitié.

    1. Bonjour chère Martine,
      Non, le défi n'est pas facile, mais je suis amateur de regarder toutes les œuvres d'art, en particulier la vôtre.

      Le nom de votre fille est si beau. Fauve n'est pas commun ici, donc j'ai cherché la signification et un site qui a dit que le nom signifiait "sauvage et sans inhibiteur." Eh bien, cette description me rappelle la fille dans la peinture (et ses cheveux).

      J'espère, mon ami, que cette année est votre meilleure année, personnellement et professionnellement. Vous souhaitant santé et bonheur au-delà de vos attentes "les plus folles".
