"Shopping for Fleas"

5 x 10"
oil on masonite

I've spent the last five days working on paintings for an upcoming show in October - one took me two days, the other three. Yikes. So unlike me. Time to take a break and loosen up - and continuing on with my series ATL to NYC & Back - a woman I spotted at our first stop on that bright, sunny, Saturday morning - at a flea market in Hell's Kitchen.

Great piece. Especially love her beautiful dark skin tones against the rich caramel colors of the background.

Love these colors and her posture. Checking out the goods. Love your treatment of her hair too.
Good luck with the painting!

So like the suggested background and her gesture, wonderfully relaxed.
Feel I could almost touch that soft cloud of hair.
